Performance excerpt.

Eiko & Koma conceived and created Offering as a mourning ritual in post 9/11 New York City and performed it in six different city parks in July 2002. Dancing in the Streets produced the series under the title "Reclaim Our City with Dance." Dancing in the Streets Director Aviva Davidson and Eiko & Koma worked closely with neighborhood organizations, which co-sponsored the events. In New York City, Lakshmi Aysola performed with Eiko & Koma.  Before and after these New York presentations, Eiko & Koma performed Offering in Baltic countries, Poland, New England and the West Coast.
