Triskelion Arts, in association with Vangeline Theater and The New York Butoh Institute, presents Yumiko Yoshioka in 100 Light Years of Solitude on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts, Muriel Schulman Theater, 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222. Tickets are $18 in advance ($22 at the door) and are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/yumiko-yoshioka-guest-curated-event-by-vangeline-theaterny-butoh-institute-tickets-39531069493 or by phone at (718) 389-3473.

Butoh Master Yumiko Yoshioka performs 100 Light Years of Solitude, the second part of her trilogy 100 Flowers. The work is inspired by Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and explores a state of solitude through Butoh. Yumiko Yoshioka is a Japanese Butoh dancer and choreographer from Japan/ Germany. She is a former member of Ariadone, the first female Butoh company, which was founded by Ko Murobushi and Carlotta Ikeda in 1974.

In 100 Light Years of Solitude, Yumiko dances the life of a unique creature, born on a planet 100 light years away from ours. Imagining that this creature is the only one of its species on that planet, it enjoys unfolding its life until it realizes its destiny: to exist in solitude.

Yumiko says, "In my childhood, I was always fascinated by the imaginary creatures and monsters of fairy tales. Butoh, a dance of metamorphosis, helps me to explore this imaginary world, and make something invisible visible."

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council as well as the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature

VANGELINE THEATER/ NEW YORK BUTOH

INSTITUTE aims to preserve the legacy and integrity of Japanese Butoh, while carrying the art form well into the future. The unique art of Butoh originated in post-World War II Japan as a reaction to the loss of identity caused by the westernization of Japanese culture, as well as a realization that ancient Japanese performing traditions no longer spoke to a contemporary audience. One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique performing art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century.

ABOUT TRISKELION ARTS

Triskelion Arts houses five lovely rehearsal studios, one of which is a the fully-equipped black-box performance space, the Muriel Schulman Theater, and one of which is the Douglas Elliman Studio Theater. The original space, in heart of Williamsburg at 118 N. 11th Street, opened in 2000 where it thrived for nearly 15 years before its recent relocation to a two-story, stand-alone, treelined corner in Greenpoint. Triskelion offers affordable rehearsal, class and performance space to hundreds of working artists and hosts a full roster of shows and classes. The Triskelion Arts Presents program presents full-length or half-evening-length work of over 50 select artists and companies every year. Additionally, Triskelion's annual festivals feature the work of over 75 choreographers, clowns, comics, and film makers. The organization is grateful for past or current support from Dance Theater Workshop, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, NYSCA, the Brooklyn Arts Council/JP Morgan Chase Regrant Program, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and The Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
