Third Space Politics in Zero Degrees (2005) and Desh (2011)

Part of the New World Choreographies book series (NWC)


Khan’s new interculturalism is bound up in questions of the self. Through it he negotiates the tricky terrain between his inherited relationships with Bangladesh and his own embodied Britishness. This in-betweenness fuels Khan’s musings on identity-politics in the diaspora and beyond, and finds profound manifestations in two critically acclaimed pieces, Zero Degrees (2005) and Desh (2011).
