Richard F. Celeste Theatre
inside Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, 825 N. Cascade Ave.
Eiko & Koma have developed a unique blend of modern dance, performance art, video, and costume design that transcends genre or discipline. Since 1972, the Japanese-born choreographer/dancers have challenged and galvanized audiences with their performances. This is not traditional dance, but a riveting "theater of movement created out of stillness, shape, light, and sound.”
Among their many accolades, Eiko & Koma have received two “Bessies” (1984 and 1990), a Guggenheim Fellowship (1985), a MacArthur Genius Award (1996), and United States Artists Fellowships (2006). They were honored with the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award (2004) and the Dance Magazine Award (2006) for lifetime achievement in modern dance.
Reception and book signing at IDEA Space with Eiko & Koma immediately following the performance. Presented by IDEA and The Colorado College Drama and Dance Department and sponsored by the Virginia Darnes Yates Endowment.
