One of the more hotly anticipated performances at the Wexner Center this fall is the one-night only, U.S. premier of Zero Degrees, on October 10, a collaboration between Akram Khan and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, two of Europe's most successful choreographers. Upon the London debut of the show last year, The Guardian published this bit of background on the unlikely pairing (along with the show's composer and sculptor), which serves as a good primer for the performance.
