Performance footage. Full length.

Thirst is Eiko & Koma's first longer piece to be performed entirely without music. The painted the backdrop and floor were painted by Eiko & Koma with a burnt flour paste. During the performance the material crumbled and fell downwards as they moved, creating an organic soundscape. In the extremely bright lights of the set, Eiko & Koma became thirstier as the four sections progressed, seeking both water and intimacy in an extreme setting.
