Eiko & Koma to Return to ASU Gammage to Celebrate 40 Years of Dance, 3/29
Tempe, AZ -- Eiko & Koma return to ASU Gammage to present REGENERATION, a three-part retrospective looking at some of their most acclaimed and celebrated work. Eiko & Koma's performance focuses on the elemental, with works that transcend everyday notions of time and space. During REGENERATION they will perform their newest work; Raven, with live music by acclaimed Pueblo musician Robert Mirabal, along with two seminal early works, White Dance (1976) and Night Tide (1984).Tickets are on sale for the March 29, 7 p.m. performance at asugammage.com or at the ASU Gammage Box Office.
For 40 years, Eiko & Koma have been creating a unique theater of movement out of stillness, shape, light, sound and time. Using their past works and their artistic trajectory as source material, Eiko & Koma are examining the concept of a visual arts retrospective in a performing arts context.
Eiko & Koma is part of ASU Gammage's 2013-2014 BEYOND series, which for 22 years has evolved into a carefully curated series that brings world-class artists into the community. The artists selected present compelling work while connecting with Valley residents through artist residency programs, master classes and public performances.
For nearly 50 years, ASU Gammage has been a top cultural destination in the Valley. The Frank Lloyd Wright designed performing arts center located on the Tempe campus of Arizona State University is one of the largest university-based presenters of performing arts in the world and top touring market for Broadway. Home to the Desert Schools Broadway Across America-Arizona and BEYOND series, the mission of Connecting CommunitiesTM goes beyond the stage and the programs and impacts the community through shared experiences in the arts.
