Bangladeshi-British choreographer Akram Khan presents his Olivier Award-winning solo work, DESH, in which one man attempts to find identity and balance in an unstable word. Bengali for "homeland," DESH explores 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. Part of the 2013 White Light Festival.
