WHAT'S GOING ON
Join XUE, Cruise Chen and Mantravine for a special night of music and movement to activate the body! XUE will introduce a guided session of butoh relaxation techniques followed by a free movement session at The Glass Hut, with beats by Mantravine and Cruise Chen on guitar!
Immerse yourself in a night of unwinding, undoing and unraveling of the body, connect to a sense of freedom and wholeness!
No movement experience required!
Xue is a performance artist and butoh practitioner currently based in Singapore. Their dance celebrates the precarity of a body in flux. Through butoh, their body becomes a channel for temporal realities, embodying a fluid yet unyielding process of becoming and unbecoming; form and formlessness.
As a butoh dancer, Xue has exhibited butoh work for The Online New York Butoh Institute Festival (2020) and was one of the featured artists of the Online Queer Butoh Festival (2021) presented by Vangeline Theater/ New York Butoh Institute and is slated to performed at the Queer Butoh Festival (2022) in NYC this summer.
