A Body in Places is the omnibus title of Eiko’s first solo project. Its scale and modes of presentation vary radically. Central to the project is a drive to explore non-traditional venues and to respond to the innate characteristics of each specific place, inspired by the history and tradition of traveling musicians, poets and actors who perform from town to town. At the core of each variant, is Eiko alone – by attempting to connect with each individual as a means to explore solitude, gaze, fragility and intimacy.
In the River To River Festival, Eiko debuts the latest iteration of the project: A Body in a Station. This non-theatrical performance continues her exploration of fragility of the body within public places that mutually affects and is affected by the gaze of those passers by who come upon her. What occurs at the intersection of a forlorn figure encountered where it is not expected and the viewers who happen upon it?
