Eiko Otake: The Duet Project
The Duet Project: Distance Is Malleable
A collaboration with Beverly McIver, Alexis Moh, DonChristian Jones, and Mark McCloughan
Eiko's performance will be an interdisciplinary, inter-generational work that interweaves various duets with an eclectic mix of collaborators including Durham's celebrated painter Beverly McIver. The theme of this ADF-commissioned work focuses on how distance is malleable, as demonstrated through select encounters between Eiko and her collaborators. In addition to McIver, these include visual artist, rapper, singer/songwriter DonChristian Jones, dancer/poet Mark McCloughan, and filmmaker Alexis Moh.
