Vangeline is back in Chicago this Fall to teach a Butoh workshop and perform her wildly acclaimed FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN. Vangeline’s approach is well informed by numerous Butoh Masters and her style is unique. Her workshops provide an opportunity to explore and move deeply into an embodied process, 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.
Every Sunday @Outerspace 12-2pm, and Monday nights 6-8pm @HCL, MANA Contemporary.
Beginning with breath work primarily, we locate our breath in our bodies and together create a generous mindbody space to explore new ways of being. We spend time writing/drawing to formalize and ritualize the ideas that come forth, and perform short vignettes for each other to solidify and share our discoveries. Come dance your heart out~
Learn to bring your most vibrant internal sensations to a lively connected performance!
In this workshop Annie Rudnik and Sarah Gottlieb approach somatics through the lens of performance. They will guide dancers to sense deep layers of internal connection and ease of movement with Feldenkrais and Laban/Bartenieff Fundamentals. Participants will learn to integrate inner/outer focus with internal impulses by exploring the role of the witness and will cultivate choice-making methods through improvisational score building.
All the beautiful performances!! Can’t wait to do it again~
