Marking ten years since the triple disaster—the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdowns—in March 2011, Eiko will perform outdoors while projecting the Fukushima landscape and her body in Fukushima onto the wall of the Music Studios building. The performance features an original score by violinist David Harrington, who played thinking of the grave nuclear disaster and his friend Eiko performing in desolate Fukushima.
