New York Butoh dance company Vangeline Theater will make its Triskelion Arts debut February 1st and 2nd, 2013, with the New York Premiere of SPECTRAL, an evening-length work by Artistic Director Vangeline.
Tickets for the Triskelion Arts debut engagement of Vangeline Theater are $15 and can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/281355. Triskelion Arts is located at 118 North 11th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Choreographed by Vangeline, described by the Los Angeles Times as "moving with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese butoh artist," SPECTRAL is a performance of Butoh-the avant-garde Japanese dance form that developed after Hiroshima. SPECTRAL is Artistic Director Vangeline's first collaboration with filmmaker and video Artist Geoff Shelton. Set in a dream landscape with dancers wearing period costumes and white body make up, SPECTRAL uses unique production elements to create an unknown world of darkness enhanced by projection on smoke and flickering light. Vangeline's solo, which conjures up haunting images of the ghosts of women past and their often forgotten sacrifices, has beencritically acclaimed by Time OUT Chicago (Best Dance Visits 2011) and featured in the film The Letter (2012) with Winona Ryder and James Franco.
