"Butoh can lead us back to our rebellions, our private wars, our wounded selves, and through the process brings what is hidden into the light."
The process is deeply healing and transformative.
Shedding various masks and layers of conditioning leads to more honesty. When we are stripped of our defenses, we can offer our best. We become capable of intimacy and humanity."

Vangeline's Workshops provide an opportunity to explore and move deeply into a process which Butoh dance cultivates, of seeking the emergence of the deeper self, awakening lost parts of the human being, exploring all human qualities to transform our dance, our daily life and offer creative energy to the community.
This Butoh workshop creates a supportive environment to start an individual and collective process of investigation through creative movement. Participants start a spiritual and energetic journey to express, heal and transform hidden aspects of themselves.
The work incorporates Japanese Butoh techniques, guided imagery, bio-energetics, core energetics, creative movement, improvisation, release techniques, elements of Noguchi gymnastics. This unique training is an invaluable tool for dancers, actors, adult beginners, encouraging participants to open up and expand physically and energetically. All levels are welcome.
Vangeline has taught and choreographed in New York for the past 10 years. Vangeline is a dancer, teacher and choreographer from France. She is a Butoh artist and Artistic Director of the Vangeline Theater, a Dance company founded in December 2002.
