I am thrilled both to begin my blog and to invite you all to my first solo show in collaboration with Vangeline theater!
“Très Mort –Tremor-” is a project conceived by photographer Celeste Sloman and Butoh Artist Vangeline.
Part photography exhibition, video portraits and live Butoh installation,"Très Mort" explores the world of facial tremors induced by Butoh.
Our face is a mask underneath which lies a world of contradiction and mystery made manifest by involuntary muscle contractions. This immersive installation features photographs of Vangeline Theater Butoh dancers, as well as a one-hour video portrait of the dancers going in and out of 'Butoh State'. Between 7pm and 8pm, the exhibit will be accompanied by a live Butoh performance with dancers mixing in with the crowd, in civilian clothing, transitioning from a neutral state into Butoh, and then back to neutral.
