Due to the COVID 19 crisis, Vangeline Theater/ New York Butoh Institute launches Vangeline Theater on Demand. Over the next few months, we keep butoh front and center in New York by sharing rare archival butoh performances with our community. Our first release, now online, is the archival footage of Erasure, featuring Vangeline and filmed on May 19, 2019 at Theater for the New City, NY. Rentals are $5.99, and can be purchased online at vimeo.com/ondemand/erasurewithvangeline.
Erasure is the second installment of a performance triptych by Butoh artist Vangeline. The 60-minute solo is a contemporary take on fairy tales Sleeping Beauty and Rumpelstiltskin and explores the phenomenon of female erasure taking place in our society.
