★★★★★ (out of 5) - Telegraph

"Mesmerizing"  - The Times, UK

A new dance piece from Akram Khan, masterful choreographer and performer (and featured artist in the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony). DESH, meaning “homeland” in Bengali, follows one man as he explores the fragile fluctuations of life in an unstable world. This Olivier Award-winning production features stellar collaborators, including Oscar-winning visual artist Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
