Dancing with Ghosts

By the Fading Light / Butoh Beethoven Blue Cliff


In this international cultural mix of Japan, Denmark, Israel, USA and France, two modern day Butoh artists, Yael Gaathon and Vangeline, bring to the stage two solo pieces with complementary and contradictory styles and atmosphere.
By the Fading Light is a Butoh-theater piece about age and aging. In it Yael Gaathon (DK/ISR) unfolds the inner story of a woman past and present, journeying through memories, fears and acceptance.
In Butoh Beethoven Butoh dancer Vangeline (USA/FR) conjures up the ghosts of two passionate giants – founder of Butoh Tatsumi Hijikata and composer Ludwig van Beethoven – creating an hypnotic, electrifying and award-winning solo performance.

Teaterøen is a minifestival under CPH STAGE with 10 productions in 7 days. Teaterøen offers a performing arts landscape in theatrical spaces at Refhaleøen. BUY A DAY PASS FOR: DKK 75 -150
