The Retrospective Project Video Archive #18. Excerpt.
Premiering in 1991 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Next Wave Festival, LAND was a collaboration among Eiko & Koma, painter Sandra Lerner, musician and composer Robert Mirabal, and drummer Reynold Lujan. During the performance, Mirabal played his commissioned score live with Lujan. Eiko & Koma's sons, Yuta and Shin, also performed in the production. Set was designed and executed by Sandra Lerner. Support provided by the Japan-U.S. Friendship Commission, the Sezon Foundation and the Asian Cultural Council made it possible for Eiko & Koma to present LAND at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Hiroshima, Japan.
