Press Release:

“There is no one like these two dancer-choreographers. Theirs is the intensity of strong, white light, exhausting but beautiful.” —Dance Magazine

Art forms merge and a gallery becomes a stage. Naked is a dance/visual art installation in which renowned Japanese movement artists Eiko & Koma inhabit the Walker’s Event Horizon exhibition. Created specifically for the space, this organic monthlong performance touches on universal themes relating to nature and the body. The artists explore a conceptual environment that will capture your senses, while their exposed bodies serve as a metaphor for raw human existence and the longing of the soul. Stay for a few minutes or the entire day, or return numerous times to see the piece evolve.
