Mobility and Flexibility in Bahok (2008)

  • Royona Mitra
Part of the New World Choreographies book series (NWC)


In Zero Degrees’ and Desh’s dismantlings of the third space, Khan’s complex negotiations between his inherited roots and his chosen routes emphasise his multiple affiliations to people, places, cultures, nations and ultimately homes. His ability to move between, occupy, find resonance in and influence multiple spaces and places simultaneously points to another significant catalyst that fuels his embodied approach to new interculturalism; this is the condition of mobility and its relationship to flexibility vis-à-vis relocated subjectivities and homes.1
