Vangeline Theater and the New York Butoh Institute present ɪˈreɪʒə (Erasure), running May 16-19, 2019 at Theater for the New City's Johnson Theater, with performances Thursday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets for the performance are $15 General Admission and can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/re-erasure-tickets-57540984634.
ɪˈreɪʒə (Erasure) is the second installment of a performance triptych by butoh artist Vangeline. The 60-minute solo explores butoh techniques of erasure, as well as the phenomenon of female erasure taking place in our society. Vangeline, who both created and performs the piece, states, "Women are the forgotten of history. We have been silenced, erased from memory; even our names have been erased, while famous men were laid in the Pantheon for posterity. How many women writers, artists, scientists are there, whose names we will never know or remember? Through the magic of Butoh, I will "erase" myself, and give space for women to come back and dance through me."
