Triskelion Arts is pleased to present new work by Tetsuro Fukuhara and Vangeline, representing the second and third generations of Butoh, a physical symbol of evolution— teacher to student, man to woman, past to future. For this collaboration, the artists work together to share their art-making practices to create new work. Fukuhara performs in a large, suspended hollow tube and Vangeline premieres “Dance of Darkness”. Through this collaborative performance, the artists seek to reveal the way the art form has grown and shifted, and how individuals are encouraged to adapt Butoh, ensuring the style is reflective and responsive. In advance of these performances, several community engagement and educational activities will occur to build audience and interest, including a symposium with Fukuhara and Vangeline and a number of other experts at Howl! Arts in Manhattan (November 13, 2017). 

Over the past 60 years, Butoh has become a universal and international movement language. Developed in post-World War II Japan, the minimalist avant-garde dance form has grown, evolved, and travelled worldwide; Butoh is taught and performed across the United States, in Europe, Africa, and Latin America. While the form has its roots in Japan, there are Butoh artists of all cultures, backgrounds, and ethnicities continuing its legacy into the 21st century.
