Presented by Danspace Project in association with Asia Society
May 27-29, 2010 · [Thu-Sat] · 8:00 PM
Admission: $18 ($12 for members)

Veteran dance-makers Eiko & Koma’s ground-breaking three-year Retrospective Project will be presented at Danspace Project as Retrospective Project I: Regeneration. Using their past works and their artistic trajectory as source material, Eiko & Koma are examining the concept of a visual arts retrospective in a performing arts context. The first engagement will include unexpected juxtapositions of complementary elements. They will present excerpts from White Dance, the work which introduced them to the United States in 1976, and Raven, one of their most recent works, featuring a live performance by Robert Mirabal; a showing of their videos including their most recent work, Dancing in Water: the Making of ‘River;’ and conversations with special guests, including:

Thursday, May 27th: Margaret Leng Tan, a critically acclaimed pianist who collaborated with Eiko & Koma in 2007 on Mourning

Friday, May 28th: Sam Miller, the Retrospective Project producer, and Charles Reinhart, director of the American Dance Festival

Saturday, May 29th: David Gordon and Valda Setterfield, renowned choreographer and dancer from Gordon’s Pick Up Performance Company
