DanceHouse, in co-presentation with SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs and Théâtre la Seizième, is delighted to announce the Vancouver premiere of Akram Khan Company’s award-winning solo, Chotto Desh – loosely based on Khan’s childhood raised under the stern eye of his authoritarian father. Performances will be held in French on November 22 at 8pm and with ASL Interpretation on November 24 at 2pm. UK choreographer Akram Khan and children’s theatre Director Sue Buckmaster fuse kathak, storytelling, mime, and interactive animation to create a tale of a young man’s dreams and memories growing up in Britain and Bangladesh. This work, for adults and children ages seven and up, aims to address the relationship between parent and child, as well as concepts of home, identity, and belonging in our multicultural world.
