Eiko Otake presents A BODY IN A CEMETERY (SEPTEMBER 26 + 27)
On Saturday and Sunday, September 26th and 27th at 6pm EST, Eiko will perform A Body in a Cemetery at The Green-Wood Cemetery as part of Graveyard Shift, an annual collaboration between Green-Wood and Pioneer Works, that presents a new way for artists and audience members to interact with the Cemetery space.
Eiko writes, “I have no intention to offer a theatrical production. We will observe the cemetery carefully and actively so we can hear the transformation of lives and deaths. At the cemetery, I do not want to express the rage that so many of us now hold in our bodies for so much racial injustice and wrongdoings. I will leave my rage at the gate and will pick up again when I leave the cemetery."
