A Body with Fukushima

Since 2014, Eiko Otake has been visiting Fukushima with historian and photographer William Johnston, performing without an audience and recording them on camera. This is a 25 minute edit of a performance that Otake did while projecting a one hour video compilation of photographs taken over five trips to Fukushima onto the walls of a theatre. The present, past and landscape of post-earthquake Fukushima are presented through her body.

Eiko Otake

After studying with Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno in Japan in the 1970s, Eiko Otake studied with Manja Chmiel in Germany and Lucas Hoving in the Netherlands. She moved to New York in 1976, where she pursued a unique style of body expression as part of Eiko & Koma. In 2014 she began her solo career with A Body in Places, which has attracted much attention and been presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA and the Walker Art Center, among others. She was the first Asian artist to win the ADF Awards (2004) and Dance Magazine Awards (2006).
