CHILMARK, MA: "A Body in Places" by Eiko Otake
A Body in Places is Eiko’s solo project. She goes to a place of her choice, studies the function, and characteristics of the place, and performs there alone without theatrical lights, music, or other conventions of performance venues. At the core of each variant is Eiko alone projecting and exploring solitude, gaze, fragility, and intimacy. Central to the project is a drive to make the distance between places malleable using her body as a conduit. In Eiko & Koma’s performances, two bodies represent drama even when the other was absent. A Body in Places does not offer such drama. Performing as a soloist, Eiko willfully partners with the particularities of places and viewers.
