A Body in a Library is a part of Eiko's solo project, A Body in Places.
Eiko premiered the work at Wesleyan University's Olin Library on February 23, 2015 (See Video). She performed it again on September 17, 2015 at the Russell Library in Middletown (See Video).
At both places, the photographs of Eiko in Fukushima, by William Johnston, were projected on the walls in various parts of the libraries to bolster the links between all of the different places that Eiko has taken this project.
