In collaboration with DonChristian Jones.

This piece combines two videos. The first part (PRACTICE), draws from three different sets of footage. Eiko and DonChristian Jones' rehearsal footage is accented by scenes of the changing (changed) neighborhood of the west end of Harlem, 125th Street, and clips from Eiko's solo performances elsewhere. The second part (PERFORMANCE: March 29, 2019) is a short excerpt from the performance of Bodies, created and performed by DonChristian Jones and Eiko Otake. The performance happened in the same plaza in which they created the work and practiced as seen in the first part of the video. The PERFORMANCE video also shows how the PRACTICE video was projected onto the cloth Eiko and Don held at the conclusion of their performance. Eiko, who edited the work, hopes these two videos contextualize each other by combining past and present, bodies and place.

Camera by Eiko Otake, Alexis Moh, Pierre Plantevin, and Sumie Yonei
