A Body in Places Met Edition

Eiko and William Johnston, photographer and Japanese history professor, have travelled together to post-nuclear disaster Fukushima four times to document the irradiated landscape and Eiko’s performances there.  From tens of thousands pictures taken, Eiko selected, ordered, and choreographed the photos, adding text as well as sound to create a seven and half hour video for her new work, A Body in Places: Met Edition commissioned by Metropolitan Museum's Live Arts. With projected imaged of the video, Eiko performed all day at the Met's three locations: Cloister, Breuer, and Fifth Avenue on Nov 5, 12, 19, 2017.
