April 15 through the 17, Eiko Otake will be performing, “The Duet Project: Distance is Malleable” at NYU Skirball. In person event. Must show proof of vaccination. Tickets: $35
Dance visionary Eiko Otake’s newest offering, Distance is Malleable, is a mutable and evolving series of experiments in collaboration. Negotiating differences of race, age, culture, and religion, she partners with a diverse range of artists, living and dead, to maximize the potential of their encounters. This cross-disciplinary project explores the ever-changing nature of distance, shared place, loss, survival, and memory. The New York premiere at NYU Skirball will include Eiko’s duets with choreographer/improviser Ishmael Houston-Jones, painter/rapper/organizer Don Christian Jones, world-renowned avant-garde pianist Margaret Leng Tan, and poet/performance maker Iris McCloughan.
