EIKO OTAKE in A Body in Places
Eiko Otake's solo debut of A Body in Places began through research in 2014 at Fukushima, Japan, the tsunami- and nuclear-inflicted site. Since 1972, Japanese-born choreographer/dancers Eiko & Koma have created a unique and riveting theater of movement out of stillness, shape, light and sound.
A Body in Places responds to a given site while Eiko performs as if a cipher. As we watch Eiko, she watches us. As we disappear, she looks back. If resolution determines visibility, the ability to see and be seen is of great social and political consequence. Yet resolution must involve resolve as well, and this is what A Body in Places excels at.
Eiko will perform A Body in Places at both Vizcaya and PAMM at locations that she selected while visiting early this year. Each performance will be very specific to the individual site and the time of day. Thus by attending all three performances one would see each one as a distinct experience. If it rains, Eiko will move through the rain, so bring your umbrella. The rain will be part of it!

For most of March, 2016, Eiko has been the featured artist of the 10th "Platform," a month-long series of performances and events sponsored by Danspace Project. Her Platform 2016: A Body in Places series will extend the solo with performances, readings, films and installations. The New York Times has reviewed events within this Platform project extensively.

Eiko will present a video lecture, A Body in Fukushima, describing her initial project that led to A Body in Places, on April 1 at the Mindy Solomon Gallery. Join us for an intimate session with the amazing Eiko, as she takes us to her exploration of this site of nuclear disaster and environmental devastation.
