In our preview for this year's Time Based Arts Festival (TBA) we noted that "the return of Eiko Otake to TBA is a centerpiece of this year’s festival." Otake appeared at the first TBA as part of the internationally recognized performance duo Eiko & Koma, but—after over 40 years of working together—Otake began a solo project called A Body in Places, in 2014. (For those that just can't get enough Otake, check out this 2010 New York Times profile. The end seems to foreshadow the new direction.)

Otake performed A Body in Places at numerous locations around the globe, including at PNCA as part of TBA's opening. She also collaborated on a new work, The Duet Project: Distance Is Malleable, with choreographer Ishmael Huston-Jones, poet Iris McCloughan, and filmmaker Alexis Moh. Mercury photographer Briana Cerezo attended Distance Is Malleable and captured these striking images of the performance. SUZETTE SMITH
