At Triskelion, A Feminist Dance Piece by Denisa Musilova

Dancer-choreographer Denisa Musilova has put a modern twist on the classic love triangle. Yes, there are one man and two women in her dance piece, Fitting Rooms, but a Marius-Cosette-Eponine reimagining this is not. Instead it’s more like if Handmaid’s Tale were set to dance — but with a more theatrical and less grim tone.

Fitting Rooms at Triskelion Arts

The lithely and talented Massimiliano Balduzzi, Giulia Carotenuto, and Musilova herself perform in this feminist and individualist piece, which concludes at Triskelion Arts (106 Cayler Street) this evening at 8 PM after its three-day run. Continue reading

The Exhilarating Japanese Butoh ‘Flower-Secret’ at Triskelion Arts

"Flower-Sceret" at Triskelion Arts

As she slowly rose her body from the stage floor to an upright position, solo dancer Vangeline—founder and artistic director of dance company Vangeline Theater—looked otherworldly. Her limbs twisted gracefully as she ascended, but her facial expression was full of pain. Otherworldly is a fitting description for the traditional form of Japanese Butohthe type of dance that Vangeline Theater teaches and champions.

Vangeline Theater, along with the New York Butoh Institute, presented Flower-Secret at Greenpoint’s Triskelion Arts (106 Calyer Street) as part of the 2017 New York Butoh Festival (Nov. 17-19). The performance featured two solos of the avant-garde movement form, folding in the traditional practice of Butoh with its social and cultural significance, and bringing it all into the 21st century. Butoh was created post-World War II as a form of protest. The sporadic and unexpected movements and facial expressions of Butoh performers can be unsettling—but the visual impact is indelible. It’s meant to be subversive, but is exhilarating to watch. This historic performance, starring contemporary practitioner Vangeline and Butoh master Tetsuro Fukuhara, is an example of the artists and seminal cultural events that make their way to the corner of Calyer Street and Banker Street in Brooklyn.

Immersive Chocolate Dances come to Triskelion Arts Tonight and Saturday

Chocolate Dances via Facebook
Choreography meets Chocolate! Via Facebook

Megan Sipe might have the coolest job description around. She’s a Choreographer/Chocolatier and she’s melded both of her passions, dance and chocolate making, into one exciting company: Chocolate Dances. Through Chocolate Dances, Sipe and her creative partners create multi-sensory performances paired with handcrafted chocolates, which they serve to the audience during each performance. The result is a natural connection between performers and audience members.

This week Chocolate Dances’ newest performance is coming to Greenpoint, and you can be part of it!  The Chocolate Dances Costume Party Tasting Performance will be in the Muriel Schulman Theater at Triskelion Arts (106 Calyer Street) Tonight (10/11) and Saturday (10/14) at 8pm. The performance is sure to showcase Chocolate Dances in all its decadent glory, and promises to be an event that “taps into your gustatory cortex, that mysterious part of your brain that allows you to taste the deepest, darkest (or milkiest) chocolate truffles we’ll be serving and provokes the question, what if you could let yourself fully live out your chocolate fantasy without reservation?” Continue reading
