WATCH ONLINE: Eiko Otake & Joan Jonas present "With the Earth at My Waistline" (Until August 31)
"In an atmosphere alternately dreamlike and matter-of-fact, With the Earthreveals its two main characters, whitehaired Ms. Jonas and black-haired Ms. Otake, moving independently, sometimes in eerie coordination with themselves on film. They take up and manipulate select objects, chosen by Ms. Jonas, while passing through a world of expansive projections and specially set areas of the church, all worlds of their own."
—Robert Greskovic, Wall Street Journal
