The show is a revival.

A few years ago, Akram Khan, the famous dancer and choregrapher, returned to the lands of his parents, in Bangladesh. From this deeply moving experience, he pulled his narrative dance solo called Desh, quite successful. It was orchestrated in the style of a picture book. In its incredible poetry, Desh plunged the spectator into its childhood, but also into the reality of the world of today. The show had such a success as a new version stood out: Chotto Desh (small country) to be seen in family with children from 7 years old.
Naturally, the charming tale keeps all its exotic flavors and the dance shakes the strong sensations of the young age. In a body movements of the immediate, she passes on the urgency of the real-life moment. From the city to the river in the jungle, where the small hero makes mesmerizing meetings, the adventure of Chotto Desh connects the cultures and the generations.
