A Body in East Village

A Body in East Village (2016)

This trilogy is exemplary of the collaboration between Eiko and Alexis Moh, who has filmed some 18 months of A Body in Places. The work was chosen to be screened in 2017 Dance for Camera Festival at Walter Reade Theater in Lincoln Center, NYC.

Eiko's solo project, "A Body in Places," was the focus of Danspace Project's tenth PLATFORM, a month-long curated program, during which Eiko gave near daily performances in various locations throughout the East Village. The sites were chosen for their variations and intimacy. The limited audience members gathered at St. Marks Church and walked to the undisclosed site as a group. Although every performance was filmed, these three locations were chosen to illuminate how each place shaped Eiko's performance and how her body is offered as a common experience during the Eiko's solos in PLATFORM.
