On three Sundays in November 2017, Eiko performed a commissioned work, A Body in Places: Met Edition, at each of the three Met buildings: the Cloisters, the MET Breuer, and the Fifth Avenue building, co-presented by the Museum and Performa17. At each location, her performance was framed by a day-long video she created from thousands of photographs taken by William Johnston of her dancing in irradiated Fukushima from 2014-2017. No images were repeated, and occasional captions oriented the viewers in time and space. This video is an excerpt of her seven-and-a-half-hour performance at the Fifth
Avenue Met on November 19, 2017. Camera by Marius Becker. Edited by Eiko Otake with Shingo Umehara
