Eiko & Koma: Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty

Edited by Joan Rothfuss. Text by Suzanne Carbonneau, André Lepecki, Doryun Chong, Philip Bither, Forrest Gander. Photo-essays by Philip Trager, Jan Henle.

Featured image, by Philip Trager, captures Eiko & Koma at Jacob's Pillow in the winter of 1993. Reproduced from the <a href="walkerartcenter.html">Walker Art Center's</a> complete, illustrated catalogue of Eiko & Koma's dance works,
<a href="9780935640977.html">Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty</a>, this image is accompanied by the following text on collaborating by Trager: "It was freezing. I photographed Eiko & Koma, half-clad, on ice and snow. There was no heat or water. Aborting the project was out of the question. Alert and attentive to one another, we shared a single-minded resolve. Our work together was totally open, often informing each other without words. This was shared creative impetus at its best.<br>
But this should have come as no surprise. Even before I started photographing them, I knew that we were totally attuned to one another, that everything would work out beautifully. The day before I arrived, Eiko & Koma chose locations for our session. I then chose some myself. From the myriad possibilities at Jacob’s Pillow, we had selected exactly the same sites."Operating at the intersections of dance, art and performance for nearly 40 years, acclaimed Japanese movement/performance artists Eiko & Koma have built up an enormously influential body of movement-theater productions, including theatrically staged performances, site works, dance videos, gallery-based performance installations and collaborations with leading music, dance and visual artists. Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty presents a complete, illustrated catalogue of their dance works, alongside editor's and choreographer's notes, reprints of primary source and other archival material, and a series of newly commissioned written responses by Anna Halprin, Dean Otto, Sam Miller, Peter Taub and others. A distinguished group of scholars from the dance and visual arts fields offer interpretations of the artists' work, including a history of the artists' relationship with the institution by Walker curator Philip Bither; an in-depth overview by Suzanne Carbonneau, Professor of Performance at George Mason University and Director of the Institute for Dance Criticism at the American Dance Festival; an essay on the sculptural qualities of Eiko & Koma's movement by André Lepecki, Associate Professor at New York University's Tisch School of Performance Studies; and a reflection/interview with the artists on their formative years in Japan and the U.S. by Doryun Chong, Associate Curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Two visual essays"" by noted photographers Philip Trager and Jan Henle and a selection of poems by Forrest Gander round out the volume.""

FROM THE BOOK
"Over the course of their forty-year collaboration, Eiko & Koma have created a body of work that is like nothing else in contemporary art. Primal, intense, and powerfully moving, their pieces explore elemental themes such as birth, death, desire, struggle, and the profound connection between the human and natural realms. They have been acclaimed and embraced by the American dance community since their arrival in the United States in 1976. Yet Eiko & Koma do not consider themselves dancers in any traditional sense. Rather, they think of themselves as artists whose medium is movement and whose work resides in the spaces between dance, theater, performance art, and sculpture.

Olga Viso, excerpted from the Foreword to Time Is Not Even, Space Is Not Empty .
