After a triumphant international tour, Vangeline Theater presents the New York Premiere of BUTOH BEETHOVEN: ECLIPSE (Admiring Tatsumi Hijikata), on October 26-31, 2016 at 8pm at The Producer's Club, Royal Theater, 358 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036. New York Butoh star 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. Celebrate Halloween week with the haunting art form of Butoh and come dressed in your own costume to any performance. Tickets are $20 General Admission and $18 for Students/Seniors. Please visit Run-time is 60 minutes.


The word “Eclipse” is derived from the ancient Greek noun á¼”κλειψις (ékleipsis), meaning “abandonment," “downfall,” or “the darkening of a heavenly body” which in turn stems from the verb ἐκλείπω (ekleípō) which means “to abandon,” “to darken,” or “to cease to exist.” Butoh is likewise the “Dance of Darkness” where performers first appear human, then as ghosts. BUTOH BEETHOVEN: ECLIPSE (Admiring Tatsumi Hijikata), 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 Sepič and fiber optic costume by the French company LumiGram. After touring this show for the past two years and receiving four stars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and critical acclaim in the United States, Vangeline shines a new light on Butoh and will transport audiences.


Butoh Beethoven: solo done with integrity and bends time as butoh ‘should’.”

- Donald Hutera, Chief Dance Critic at London Times


“A mesmerizing and exhilarating jewel… Vangeline’s exquisite control allows change where there seems no movement… a resplendent piece of performance theatre well worth seeking out: a true tour de force, literally a feat of strength, within and without.”

- 4 stars-Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Edinburgh Spotlight


“…Using subtle and raw choreography, brilliant accompaniment and the power of her presence, Vangeline succeeds in bringing an essence of these iconic individuals to life on stage. The show enthralls from start to finish. Vangeline’s performance is deeply engrossing”

-4 stars-Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Broadway Baby


Vangeline Theater has been a leader in the development of contemporary Butoh dance since its founding in 2002. Informed by the expansive vision of pioneering choreographer Vangeline, the Vangeline Theater brings to life a timeless and uniquely American style of Butoh that continues to captivate audiences. The Vangeline Theater's mission is to educate the public about Butoh, promoting an understanding of Butoh dance history and its social and cultural significance; to connect Butoh to other art forms and disciplines and to build community through Butoh. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, providing superior Butoh training to our community. The New York Butoh Institute is dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century, with a special emphasis on scientific research as it relates to Butoh. Since its inception in 2002, Vangeline Theater has fused the post-apocalyptic vision of Butoh (the Japanese dance form that developed after Hiroshima) with the near-cinematic aesthetic of 21st Century science-fiction noir. The company has been heralded in several national publications (New York Times, Los Angeles Times) and won an honorable mention from Time Out Chicago for one of the best dance visits of 2011.
