Event Description

Following a critically U.S. and International tour, Vangeline Theater presents BUTOH BEETHOVEN: ECLIPSE (Admiring Tatsumi Hijikata) on October 14, 2017 at 8pm at Theater For the New City, 155 First Avenue, NYC.  Tickets are $15 general admission ($12 for students/seniors) and are available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3056947.

 

New York Butoh dancer Vangeline conjures the ghosts of two passionate giants - Tatsumi Hijikata, founder of Butoh, and composer Ludwig van Beethoven in this hypnotic, electrifying and award-winning solo performance.  80 minutes with a 10 minute intermission.

 

"Virtuosic solo performance that will make your skin crawl in the best way possible, conjuring the ghosts of tortured geniuses Beethoven and Tatsumi Hijikata and bringing Butoh into the 21st century with technical marvels and masterful skill. Vangeline is an artist who knows the darkness of Butoh well, and has the incredible skill to make that darkness dance." - Theasy

 

The word "eclipse"is derived from the ancient Greek verb ἐκλείπω (ekleípō) which means "to abandon," "to darken," or "to cease to exist." Butoh is likewise the "Dance of Darkness" where performers dance on the threshold of Life and Death Life.

 

BUTOH BEETHOVEN: ECLIPSE is a solo piece that illuminates the darkness of Butoh with the addition of cutting edge lighting technologies such as the futuristic creations of European designer Tilen Sep and fiber optic costume by the French company LumigramAfter touring this show for the past three years and receiving four stars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, five stars at Copenhagen Stage Festival and critical acclaim in New York City, Vangeline shines a new light on Butoh and will transport audiences.

 

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