Guest Curation by Vangeline Theater & the New York Butoh Institute: Dai Matsuoka in Hijikata's Three Chapters

Dai Matsuoka walks forward, arms outstretched as if he wants something Michael Blase

In memory of Yoshito Ohno, Triskelion Arts Presents in collaboration with Vangeline Theater and The New York Butoh Institute present Dai Matsuoka in Hijikata’s Three Chapters.

The piece has been performed by Yoshito Ohno, since the founder of Butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata, choreographed this piece for him in 1985. In 2018, being interested in diving into early Butoh methods, but also for archival purposes,  Dai Matsuoka asked Yoshito Ohno to set the choreography on him and direct him in this new version. Through this piece, Matsuoka, one of the principal dancers of the renowned Butoh troupe Sankai Juku realizes a timeless collaboration with the founder of Butoh  and Yoshito Ohno. With this performance, we remember Yoshito Ohno, who recently passed on January 8, 2020.
