Do people ever talk to you while you’re performing?
Koma
Yes!
Eiko
“Are you crazy?” or “This is absurd.” This happened in the Walker [Art Center in Minneapolis], where people just happened to come to our room and find out, God, two people are lying down, naked.

How do you follow a three-year, nationwide retrospective?
Koma
We’re preparing to make an Eiko and Koma Museum. [Both laugh]

Why should people see you perform Naked at the MCA?
Eiko
To think about how naked is different from nude, and think about this question very close to two naked bodies.
