"DESH is a new full-length contemporary solo and the most personal work to date from celebrated choreographer and performer, Akram Khan. DESH meaning 'homeland' in Bengali, draws multiple tales of land, nation, resistance and convergence into the body and voice of one man trying to find his balance in an unstable world.
Moving between Britain and Bangladesh, Khan weaves threads of memory, experience and myth into a surreal world of surprising connection. At once intimate and epic, DESH explores fragility in the face of natural forces, and celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the rhythms of labour, in dream and story, and in transformation and survival."

"A collaboration between Nat Cursio and Daniel Crooks, at least for a while anyway locates Don Asker, a treasure of Australian dance practice, amongst his ‘other’ life as a farmer. In this imaginatively rendered portrait, Asker’s body is prised open to celebrate the depth of corporeal knowledge encapsulated within one extraordinary human being. Figure and ground coalesce in a work which meditates upon continuity, place and the solubility of identity."
