A Body in Places Met Edition

Eiko and Photographer and Japanese history professor William Johnston have travelled together to post-nuclear disaster Fukushima four times to document the irradiated landscape and Eiko’s performances there.  From tens of thousands pictures taken, Eiko selected, ordered, and choreographed the photos, adding text as well as sound.     

Eiko created a seven and half hour video for Met and will perform all day at three of Metropolitan Museums, Cloister, Breuer, and Fifth Avenue on Nov 5, 12, 19, 2017.

These videos  will be available as an installation and durational performance in the future. Below is the links to the videos that are for faster viewing.
