M+ Museum presented A Body in Hong Kong in two locations as part of Mobile M+: Live Art, 2015. Tim Mei Avenue, where Eiko chose and performed, was the main site of 2014 Umbrella Revolution. Nearly 100,000 people camped out, and in doing so, stopped traffic on twelve-lane highways and created a politically charged sphere. Though it is now cleaned up, every audience knew in seeing her performance that the stairs and walkways where Eiko performed were once covered with protesters' posters as well as artistic and political expressions.  A Body in Hong Kong is part of Eiko's solo project, A Body in Places.
