Eiko conceived, curated and produced a four-hour event at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine to commemorate the March 11 anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Between her two solo performances that opened and closed the event, many artists performed and scholars and a journalist shared their knowledge on the matter. A Body in Fukushima, Eiko's collaborative work with photographer and historian William Johnston, had been on view as part of the Cathedral’s Christa Project since October 2016. Other participating artists and speakers were: Marilyn Ivy, Thomas Looser, Nathan Snyder, Mark McCloughan, Alexis Moh, Nora Thompson, Megmu Tagami, John Kelly, Carol Lipnik, DonChristian Jones, Geo Wyeth, Ronald Ebrecht, Ralph Samuelson, Elizabeth Brown, Jake Price, and students of NYC iSCHOOL.
