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.


Post-performance discussion is Monday July 8.
