Akram Khan’s Olivier Award–winning solo work, DESH, is the story of a transplanted artist seeking identity and balance in an unstable word, presented here in its U.S. premiere. Bengali for “homeland,” DESH uses mercurial choreography and fantastical animation to explore the land of Khan’s ancestors, our collective frailty in the face of natural forces, and the dreams and stories that help us survive and grow.
