SCHEDULE OF WEEKLY BUTOH CLASSES WITH VANGELINE THEATER
2017/18


Butoh is an avant-garde performance art form which originated in Japan in the 1950’s.
One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation
and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique art form that is both controversial
and universal in its expression.

Vangeline’s Butoh classes incorporate Japanese Butoh, elements of Noguchi gymnastics, and guided imagery to offer a high-energy workshop adapted to each group’s level of physical fitness.

Our Butoh classes are a $20 suggested donation, with a $15 minimum.
You can pay for class either:
1) cash before each class
2) you have the option of buying one class now via PAYPAL or DEBIT/CREDIT CARD, valid one year from date of purchase.

Vangeline draws on 16 years of experience as a Butoh teacher and Butoh performer. She is the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance's Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award, and the founder of the 10-year running, award-winning program “Dream a Dream Project", which brings Butoh dance to incarcerated men and women at correctional facilities across New York City. Recent invitations include a creative residency in 2016 at Princeton University (Princeton Atelier).

This unique training is an invaluable tool for dancers, actors, adult beginners, encouraging participants to open up and expand physically and energetically. This workshop creates a gentle and supportive environment to start an individual and collective process of investigation through creative movement.
Our classes are open level and beginners are welcome.

This program is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.

Mari Osanai’s workshops focus on Noguchi Taiso combined with the influences of her early training in Tai Chi, western dance methods, traditional folk dance in Aomori, Japan (her birthplace), and the connection between one’s thoughts and sensation of weight. Osanai’s approach to movement research and exploration begins with a heightened awareness of gravity’s influence on the body and the body’s connection with the center of the earth. Exercises in the workshop train the body to embrace its weight and heighten its sensitivity to move from its most relaxed and receptive state. Starting with images, such as washing the body with water, air, sunlight, workshop participants will discover the body’s vital energies rooted in its inherent hydrodynamics. Movement and form result as participants ingest imagery inside their bodies and allow the changes to shift the body’s interior.

Mari Osanai was born in Aomori (north top of main Island in Japan) Japan. She was trained in Classical Ballet and Modern dance at an early age and later studied jazz dance Tai Chi and Noguchi Taiso.

Noguchi Taiso and its philosophy and theory had a great influence on her creations. Her unique and complex movements are created interweaving these techniques as well as taking classes with Mr. Hironobu Oikawa.

Over the years, she has performed and taught workshops in Japan. She started performing oversea since 1994; Canada (9 cities), the United States, Greece, and Germany.

She is a teacher of Noguchi Taiso and currently resides in Aomori city japan.
