Breath* (1999)

Filmed in June 1998 at the Whitney Museum of American Art and produced by the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts/Dance Collection. Breath is a creative archive project of Eiko & Koma’s living installation of the same title commissioned by the Whitney Museum. For the living installation Breath, Eiko or Koma was in the installation during all hours that the museum was open. For the media work Breath, Eiko & Koma created movement more specific to the camera and collaborated with filmmaker Jerry Pantzer in filming and editing. A disagreement between the filmmaker and the choreographers resulted in two differently edited works. ©1999, Dance Collection, New York Public Library, Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundations. Screened at the Dance on Camera Festival 2001 at Lincoln Center. 15 minutes, color video.
