Biographical/historical: "Dancing in Water: the making of River is the first video work created as a part of Eiko & Koma's Retrospective Project. Often produced in collaboration with environmental groups and park officials, River is an outdoor work Eiko & Koma performed in nine different sites. River usually takes place in a body of moving water, and the journey downstream suggests the passage of life and time." -- Eiko and Koma website.
