Retrospective Project Video Archive #29. Excerpt.
In TREE SONG, Eiko & Koma continue their exploration of the body as a part of the landscape and the landscape as an extension of the body. Trees have been symbols of resilience, rebirth and portals through which spirits pass. TREE SONG premiered in 2003 at the American Dance Festival. This excerpt was filmed at St. Mark's Church Graveyard in 2004. Georgia Wyeth played her commissioned score on a piano set in the graveyard and her mother Sharon Dennis Wyeth sung songs she wrote.
