DanceHouse, SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs and Théâtre la Seizième are delighted to announce the anticipated 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, November 21-24 at the SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts.

Akram Khan’s Chotto Desh

Chotto Desh Dancer Dennis Alamanos

When: November 21–24, 2018 at 8:00pm
Where: SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts (149 W Hastings, Vancouver)
Tickets: Available online now or call (604) 801-6225. Performances will be held in French on November 22 at 8:00pm and with ASL Interpretation on November 24 at 2:00pm.

Revered UK choreographer Akram Khan and acclaimed children’s theatre Director Sue Buckmaster fuse kathak, storytelling, mime, and interactive animation, to create a bewitching tale of a young man’s dreams and memories growing up in Britain and Bangladesh. This charming work for adults and children ages seven and up, will address the complex relationship between parent and child, as well as timely concepts of home, identity, and belonging in our multicultural world.

By mixing the Indian classical dance form kathak with mime, contemporary dance and hip hop, Khan’s blended cultural identity emerges through his dynamic choreography. His moving solo will be brought to life by the powerful physicality of company dancers Dennis Alamanos and Nicolas Ricchini, who will perform the lyrical and often deeply funny vignettes in the piece on alternate evenings. From a surly teenager practicing Michael Jackson’s crotch-grabs in his bedroom, to a man fully in control of his artistry and destiny – Chotto Desh captures the complex relationship between parent and child, and the pain and joy of growing up with astounding delicacy and beauty.
