Queering Normativity in iTMOi (2013)

Part of the New World Choreographies book series (NWC)


If Bahok explores the condition of flexibility through evoking global flows of mobility and relocations, iTMOi (2013) places it at the heart of the aestheticisation process through which Khan’s new interculturalism queers normativity. An acronym for In the Mind of Igor, and inspired by Igor Stravinsky’s seminal composition of The Rite of Spring, Khan choreographed iTMOi for the centenary celebrations of its premiere on 29 May 1913 at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris. Critics have received Khan’s homage in divergent ways.
