Eiko & Koma:
The Caravan Project
Aug 23–24, 2011, 12 am–11:59 pm
Take what is available, and make it useful.
Eiko & Koma are venerated dance artists who have been making collaborative works for more than 40 years, since leaving Japan for New York in 1974. Using their bodies, duration, and process as their guideposts, they have created stark, elemental works in landscapes, in rivers, in graveyards; and have been presented in theaters, museums, and festivals world-wide.
Over the years Eiko & Koma have literally pulled and performed their art across America in a common aluminum trailer. In this iteration of The Caravan Project, Eiko & Koma employ the same mechanism which preemptively took them to the people to perform in the most intimate stage. The performance The Caravan Project is part of the exhibition Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty, on view through November 13, 2011, and which invites you to experience their remarkable career arc with key works through photographic and video documentation, installations, and live performance.
