On September 17, 2015 Eiko brought her solo project
to Middletown's Russell Library
and performed A Body in a Library
. As she moved through the different rooms, steps, and stacks of books, audience members, both intentional and incidental, followed her around the library. Photographs of Eiko in Fukushima were projected on the walls. Though the performance ended as Eiko walked away into the darkness, she returned later to talk with viewers and answer their questions.

Her performance at Russell Library is part of a series at Wesleyan in Fall 2015, continuing on to performances at Wesleyan's Davison Art Center and Van Vleck Observatory.
