FREE! RSVP required for access to virtual event.
Artists around the world continue to make work despite—and often grappling with—the COVID-19 pandemic and political and humanistic cries. Join a tour and post-election conversation in Eiko Otake’s Virtual Studio, which expands, re-focuses, and reimagines her and her collaborators’ creative practices in 2020. Eiko will be joined by two of her collaborators, DonChristian Jones ’12 and Iris McCloughan ’10, who will also moderate the discussion.
Invited by the Center for the Arts, Eiko started work on her virtual creative residency in March 2020. Her Virtual Studio is where she posts her new creations, dialogues, and reflections. The studio also includes her work with collaborators and their voices. In working at her Virtual Studio, Eiko says she is no longer content being just a dancer/choreographer. From the studio, she observes and reaches out to the world, the world full of movements—social, political, natural, and emotional.
If you can, please check her website and view some works before joining this event, so you can have some questions and reflections to offer, as the artists would love to hear your thoughts. Participants will be hearing from artists and from each other.
