With DonChristian Jones

Working with DonChristian Jones marks 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. Together they created the following videos, parts of which will be shown in Eiko's Duet Project. All edits are by Eiko.
