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.

Vangeline is a teacher, dancer, and choreographer specializing in the Japanese postwar avant-garde movement form Butoh. She is the Artistic Director of the Vangeline Theater (New York), a dance company firmly rooted in the tradition of Japanese Butoh while carrying it into the 21st century, and the founder of the New York Butoh Institute. Vangeline's work has been heralded in publications such as the New York Times (“captivating”), Los Angeles Times, (“moves with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese Butoh artist”)  and LA Weekly to name a few. Time OUT Chicago named Vangeline's, "one of the best Dance Visits of 2011."  More recently her performance of BUTOH BEEETHOVEN: Eclipse received critical acclaim in New York and was dubbed ‘incredibly moving and powerful. It is clear that Vangeline is an artist who knows the darkness of Butoh well, and has the incredible skill to make that darkness dance...Vangeline has the control and poise of a true master of Butoh."

Vangeline is the founder of the New York Butoh Institute. She is 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. Widely regarded as an expert in her field, Vangeline is a regular guest Butoh teacher at universities such as Cornell University, New York University, Brooklyn College, CUNY and Princeton University (Princeton Atelier).
