Event Fission (1980) Excerpt

This video is from Eiko & Koma's 1980 outdoor performance in "Art on the Beach" on the Hudson River landfill, produced by Creative Time. Eiko & Koma danced with a huge white flag billowing on top of a sand dune as the audience watched from below. The white flag was used symbolically against the backdrop of the newly developed downtown buildings. Behind the performers the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were also visible. The performance lasted 1 hour. A longer video was projected as a part of Eiko & Koma's Retrospective exhibition Time is not Even, Space is not Empty.
