Eiko Otake, based in the United States since 1976, is a highly regarded artist who has performed in many countries as part of the performance duo Eiko & Koma. Her solo project A Body in Places has attracted much attention since it began in 2014, and she  performs it for the first time in Japan. Ten years since the Great East Japan Earthquake, Eiko places herself in different spaces around the Ueno area in Tokyo (Ueno Station, Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, Nakacho Shopping Street, etc.) and in the underground spaces of the former Hakubutsukan Dobutsuen Station and Shibuya River culvert, layering projected images of Fukushima onto the surrounding buildings and herself. These images are part of A Body in Fukushima, Eiko's collaboration with photographer William Johnston.
