What is Butoh?
Butoh is a form of theatrical dance that originated in Japan in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Its creation is credited to Tatsumi Hijikata (“the architect of butoh”) and Kazuo Ohno (“the soul of butoh”), who sought to create a different poetic and surreal choreographic language. Influences included German Expressionistic dance, Antonin Artaud, and European philosophy. By the 1980s, butoh spread around the world. While butoh defies categorization, it often incorporates the use of imagery to directly affect the nervous system and create qualities of movement.

Vandellous is a butoh-, burlesque, and text-based performance artist, emcee, producer, dramaturge, choreographer, director, and teacher. They work with actors, dancers, singers, writers, visual artists, and performers of all disciplines to develop skills in presence, voice, movement, and performance. With over 16 years of experience studying, practicing, and performing butoh around the world, Vandellous believes that butoh and expressive movement is for everyone with a body.
Frankie holds a BFA in Physical Theatre from Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, and a Master’s in Occupational Therapy from the University of Queensland. Frankie has studied and performed butoh around the world, is a certified teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®, and holds an Associate Performer Diploma (ATCL) with Trinity College, London. They are a member of the Voice and Speech Trainer’s Association (VASTA), a 2021 Hambidge Cross-Pollination Art Lab Fellow, and a current artist in residence at Windmill Arts.
