After more than 40 years as an acclaimed duo whose innovative and influential modern and postmodern dance was central to the American avant-garde dance scene, Eiko Otake and Takashi (Koma) Otake are now exploring solo work.

Following solo performances by both Eiko and Koma, author Rosemary Candelario — whose book Flowers Cracking Concrete: Eiko & Koma’s Asian/American Choreographies is the first in-depth study of Eiko & Koma’s work — talks with them about their history, the recurring themes of their work and what it's like to perform as soloists for the first time.

Grantee: Eiko & Koma Otake
