Eiko & Koma

Poetry by Forrest Gander

For over thirty years, Eiko & Koma, the Japanese-born choreographers and dancers, have created an influential theatre of movement out of stillness, shape, light, and sound. In tribute and collaboration, the acclaimed American poet Forrest Gander has written a mesmerizing series of poems — hinging around a dance schematic — that captures and extends the dancers’ performance with lyrical intensity and vividness.

Two larval bodies naked with faces            and seared straw in their hair hold our looking                        to the dark back of and beyond
