We have special offers available on tickets for Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes.

The word 'desh' comes from the Bengali word meaning 'homeland', themes of land and nation feature heavily in this highly personal solo performance from Akram Khan, which is showing at Sadler's Wells Theatre this June. The multiple tales shift between Britain and Bangladesh and Khan intertwines tales of memory and myth in a surprising and surreal way. Desh sees Khan join forces with Oscar-winning visual artist Tim Yip, who worked on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Olivier-Award winning composer Jocelyn Pook and slam poet Polar Bear in this critically acclaimed contemporary production. Tickets to Akram Khan: Desh at Sadler's Wells can be conveniently booked through LondonTown.com.
