von der Heyden Studio Theater at the Rubenstein Arts Center
The Nasher Museum and American Dance Festival co-present “Eiko Otake The Duet Project: Distance is Malleable.” 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, Esbenshade Professor of the Practice of Art, Art History and Visual Studies at Duke. McIver’s work is part of the Nasher Museum’s collection.
The theme is 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.
This performance contains partial nudity and adult themes.
Single tickets on sale now. This co-presentation is ADF’s seventh annual collaboration with the Nasher Museum. Congratulations to ADF on a new commission!
