Hijikata's Three Chapters
Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 8pm
Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 8pm
Triskelion Arts

In memory of Yoshito Ohno, Vangeline Theater and New York Butoh Institute in collaboration with Triskelion Arts present Dai Matsuoka in Hijikata's Three Chapters Directed by Yoshito Ohno on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 and Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 8pm at Triskelion Arts, 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY.

Hijikata's Three Chapters has been performed by Yoshito Ohno, since the founder of Butoh Tatsumi Hijikata choreographed this piece for him in 1985. In 2018, being interested in diving into early Butoh methods, but also for archival purposes, Dai Matsuoka asked Yoshito Ohno to set the choreography on him and direct him in this new version.

Tickets are $18, and can be purchased by phone at (212) 254-1109 or online at

Triskelion Arts | 106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY.

La MaMa
In association with Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre
The U.S. Premiere of
One Green Bottle
written and directed by Hideki Noda
English Translation adapted by Will Sharpe
Mon and Wed-Sat at 7pm
Sun at 5pm.
February 29 - March 8, 2020
La MaMa

La MaMa, in association with Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre and NODA·MAP, presents the U.S. Premiere of One Green Bottle from February 29 through March 8, 2020 at The Ellen Stewart Theatre, La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, 66 E. 4th Street, NYC. Performances: Mon and Wed-Sat at 7pm, Sun at 5pm.

An absurdist gender-bending farce, One Green Bottle artfully illustrates our current selfie society's relationship with consumerism and modern technology through one night in the life of a disordered family on the road to ruin: Bo, Boo and Pickle all have plans, but someone must stay home to care for their pregnant dog, Princess. Trivial disputes and slapstick mischief quickly morph into family feuds and also, possibly, to the end of the world.

Tickets are $35 ($30 for students and seniors) plus a $1 facility fee, and are available online at, by phone at 212-352-3101.

March 29th, 2020 (7pm)
The Tank

LedaLeda is a funeral oration, an enacted eulogy, for the artist’s late sister, Leda Papenfusscline. Following an imagined connection with a dead sibling, this play offers many approaches to death, minimizing the power of narrative in favor of repeated ritual and honest reflection. In an attempt to make art that goes beyond “therapy theatre,” the artists interweave death with story and memory, working through ancient myth, humor, pop culture, personal experience, and spiritualism. Time, like grief, is not a linear process. Humans have desperately mythologized their experience for centuries in order to avoid realizing there may be no sense at all in the cycles of violence that surround us. Death lacks remedy: there is nothing to learn.

Tickets $15. For more information or advance purchase visit
