Très Mort on facebook This immersive installation features photographs of Vangeline Theater Butoh dancers, as well as a one-hour video portrait of our dancers going in and out of “Butoh State”. Between 7pm and 8pm, the exhibit will be accompanied by a live Butoh performance with dancers mixing in with the crowd, in civilian clothing, transitioning from a neutral state into Butoh, then back to neutral. This project is a wonderful opportunity for audiences to experience Butoh in a less formal and distanced setting, and to show Butoh’s essential process without the distance of the stage and makeup. The un-costumed live Butoh performance is like “peeking under the hood of a car; audiences get to see the intricate, muscular, mechanics that create illusions”.(Dance Enthusiast)
