With a menacing growl from the shadows, the audience’s attention was immediately focused. Prophetic chanting from The Sacrifice of Isaac complemented by ritualistic stamping effectively established the primitive nature of the piece. 

In an original score by Nitin Sawhney, Jocelyn Pook and Ben Frost, the dirty guitar and industrial electronic sounds were most profound, hardening the atmosphere. A sense of panic was aptly created with piercing beeping and the use of vacuumed screams. 

DESH

Described as a "masterpiece" (The Observer), Akram Khan’s Olivier Award-winning solo show will return to Sadler’s Wells in June for a third run after a sell-out world tour (Rome, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Athens and Paris). Meaning “homeland” in Bengali, DESH is one of Khan’s most personal works to date. At once intimate and epic, DESH confronts the power of our personal heritage and celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.
