In this final episode, Akram Khan explains the origin and development of his first full-length solo piece, the autobiographical DESH, which took him and his team of close collaborators including Tim Yip, Jocelyn Pook, Michael Hulls and Karthika Nair to Bangladesh, the homeland of his parents. He then reveals his intention to create one last solo work. In closing, he describes how the experience of choreographing a section of the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony altered the way he looks at creation.
