A Body on Wall Street

A Body in Places is the omnibus title of Eiko’s solo project which involves going to a place of her choice, studying it and performing at the site without lighting, sound, and other theatrical conventions. Lower Manhattan is symbolic for a body relating to the larger capitalistic world. The body is fragile, unrecoverable, and irreplaceable – all of which is a stark contrast to the world of money and investment. Lower Manhattan also plays significant role in the history of immigration and immigrants – a group that Eiko belongs to and which connects her to the area.
