Chotto Desh | 4* Review | The Scotsman

2 September 2022

Utterly captivating

“The crucial ingredient here, however, is Akram Khan – one of the most exceptional British choreographers of all time. And yet calling him that doesn’t feel wholly right, for although Khan was born and brought up in London, so much of his output is infused with the cultures he was surrounded by as a child.

Which is what Chotto Desh is all about. Re-worked from Khan’s 2012 Olivier Award-winning solo, DESH, the show follows a young man trying to find his place in the world.

With a Filipino mother and Bangladeshi father, yet influenced by dance routines from America (Michael Jackson in particular), Khan begins to put all the pieces together and create his own style – much to his father’s disapproval.”
