On Friday, February 18 at 7pm PST, Eiko will present three of her evocative short films at Mills College (@millsdancedepartment), followed by a conversation between her and artist/scholar Sheldon Smith. This presentation is open to the public, both in-person and via live stream. ASL interpretation will be provided.
The films to be screened, all created during the pandemic, include “A Body in a Cemetery” (15 min), an edited recording of her September 2020 performance in Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery, mourning the dead from the pandemic as well as from past centuries; and “Projecting Fukushima in Tokyo” (35 min), which captures Eiko performing throughout Tokyo’s streets and underground locations, marking the 10-year anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown. Eiko will conclude the evening with a report on her new work, “Slow Turn,” which includes a monologue performed on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks along the Hudson River near where the Twin Towers once stood.
This screening marks Eiko’s first public event after turning 70.
