Eiko with Trajal at MoMA

Eiko with Trajal at MoMA

As the second iteration of Trajal  Harrell's "In one step are a thousand animals" (the title he has given to his two-year Annenberg Research Commission Residency project in MoMA). Trajal engaged in a conversation with Eiko on January 16, 2016.  Together with Sam Miller, the two artists, in their first public conversation, talked about the artistic legacy of avant-garde dance forms in 1960s Tokyo, Eiko’s integral participation in that scene, Harrell’s research on butoh, and the parallel aesthetic threads in their work.
