From November 27–30, 1981, The Kitchen presented two works by Japanese choreographers Eiko and Koma. In the first piece entitled Trilogy, Eiko and Koma’s exacting, slow movement seemed to focus and stretch time, while ruminating on the relationship between infinitesimally large and infinitesimally small things. The second, Nurses Song, was an excerpt from their larger work entitled Songs of Innocence, named after the William Blake poem that celebrates the inner childhood joy common in all people. For this work, Eiko and Koma danced to music written by Allen Ginsberg and performed by Bob Carroll and the Dirt Band.
