With DonChristian Jones

Working with DonChristian Jones marked the beginning of Eiko's new project, The Duet Project. Eiko met DonChristian Jones when he was a student in Eiko's course at Wesleyan University.  In February of 2016 Eiko invited DonChristian to perform in her installation during her Danspace Platform, A BODY IN PLACES, a 6-week series of performances and other activities focusing on Eiko's solo work. They also performed a duet at the end of the four-hour event Remembering Fukushima on March 11, 2017. DonChristian joined Eiko at the Rauschenberg Residency for ten days in November-December 2017. In November 2018, they developed another duet and performed the section at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and on March 29, 2019 performed a full evening length outdoor work, Bodies, at the public plaza in front of the Columbia University's Lenfest Center for the Arts using the video Run they created at the site prior to the performance.
