"I love you I miss my friend and the music is beautiful" performed and choreographed by Madelyn Sher (15 minutes).
Madelyn Sher is a movement-based artist born, raised, and based in New York City. Her choreographic work melds contemporary dance, Butoh, physical theater, and mime. She is an actor represented by Abrams Artists Agency, and dances with the Herbert H. Dance Company. She has danced in works by Vangeline Theater, RediDance, and Ni'ja Whitson.

She teaches creative movement at P.S. 42 in Chinatown.

Boundary choreographed and performed by Mari Osanai (Japan) (50 minutes)
Mari Osanai was born in Aomori (north top of main Island in Japan) Japan. She was trained in Classical Ballet and Modern dance at an early age and later studied jazz dance Tai Chi and Noguchi Taiso. Noguchi Taiso and its philosophy and theory had a great influence on her creations. Her unique and complex movements are created interweaving these techniques as well as taking classes with Mr. Hironobu Oikawa. Mari Osanai's dance works have also been heavily influenced by an early exposure to Butoh in Japan in the 1980's and 90's.

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.
