This is an edited excerpt of Eiko and Iris McCloughan's experiment working over Zoom on May 5, 2020 as a part of Eiko's Virtual Creative Residency hosted by Wesleyan University. 

Iris is both a dramaturg and a collaborator in Eiko's The Duet Project: Distance is Malleable. Iris is in their studio in Brooklyn, New York and Eiko is in a suburb of Tokyo, Japan, 6761 miles away. Both are restricted under the emergency order due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"We are in a situation we could not imagine when we subtitled our project as "Distance is Malleable." Now already a month in quarantine in Japan, I realize I will be away considerably longer from New York, where many of my collaborators are. I proposed to Iris to continue our collaboration in moving in separate places at the same time to create material as a part of The Duet Project."
