Flowers Cracking Concrete: Eiko & Koma in Performance and Conversation with author Rosemary Candelario

After more than 40 years as an acclaimed duo whose innovative and influential modern and postmodern dance was central to the American avant-garde dance scene, Eiko Otake and Takashi (Koma) Otake are now exploring solo work.

Following solo performances by both Eiko and Koma, author Rosemary Candelario — whose book Flowers Cracking Concrete: Eiko & Koma’s Asian/American Choreographies is the first in-depth study of Eiko & Koma’s work — talks with them about their history, the recurring themes of their work and what it's like to perform as soloists for the first time.
