Eiko Takahira

April 9 - 10, 1984
The artist/dancer built sculptures of wood at once natural and man-made which she incorporacted into her performance work as costume parts and sets. Draped in sculptures suggesting prehistoric, oversized insects, dancers moved easily, as if clothed in chain mail rather than wood.

At times, the dancers covered themselves with forms which were itricately carved and pieced. At other times, they wore a series of flat boards fastened together so that clanking punctuated the music of the handmade instruments which accompained them.
