Beam

Beam (1983)

First piece commissioned by the American Dance Festival for Eiko & Koma’s ADF debut. Set to Asian folk music played by Eiko on a harmonium, the piece was performed on top of an eight-foot high dirt mountain placed on the orchestra pit. The piece was inspired by an old story about a community that offered a young couple as a prayer for an architectural ambition. 15 minutes.
