Talking dance with Eiko & Koma at the Walker

Before taking in Eiko & Koma’s movement and visual art installation, “Naked,” at the Walker Art Center next month, you can listen to the famously reticent Japanese artists — internationally known for their slow, glacial unfoldings of emotion, image and mood in their butoh-like works — during “Talking Dance With Eiko & Koma” on Oct. 28.

Together with Philip Bither, performing-arts curator, the duo will discuss their 40-year creative collaboration, the retrospective project of which “Naked” is a part, and that upcoming “living installation” in the Walker galleries.

For a preview of the conversation, go here.

The New York-based artists take their inspiration from nature and violence, silence and stillness, the body and the visual. While their works unfurl with seemingly simplicity, their investigations of the body in time and space are both meditative and compelling.

“Talking Dance With Eiko & Koma.” 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 28, at the McGuire Theater, Walker Art Center. Free.
