Death Poem* (2005)

Co-commissioned by the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago and Danspace Project, this dance is a meditation on dying.  Eiko dances a long solo on a futon under a mosquito net, accompanied by the sound of insects and cicadas.  Koma enters from another world and tries to bring Eiko back with him, but he leaves without her, as she is not yet ready to go. 60 minutes
