TUESDAY

Eiko & Koma’s languid movement recalls traditional Japanese forms, but the duo’s training comes out of the German and Japanese avant-garde traditions. This week’s program includes Wind, a 70-minute piece set to the choral sounds of Chanticleer. The dancers look as if they are standing on the Earth’s surface as seen from outer space, swirls of feathery clouds on a blue background. Long stretches of darkness separate each scene. In another movement, the naked dancers shape themselves into sculptural forms of muscle and bone. They will also present the world premiere of Pulse, a Kennedy Center-commissioned work. At 7:30 p.m. tonight-Thursday at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater. $25. (202) 467-4600. (Holly Bass)
