Ela Cosen is a professional actress from the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York. She studied Butoh with Vangeline in NY and attended workshops by Tetsutro Fukuhara and Katsuro Kan. For Ela the practice of Butoh is a physical and phsychological exploration, a movement that comes from within and surfaces as bodily quakes. Through movements that are new to the body, a wide variety of characters can be unleashed. The focus is on going as deeply as the body allows, to discover new emotional terrain that then is transformed.
Her ongoing Butoh-related works include an annual video-performance-piece trace in collobaration with Judith Revers and developing new vocabulary for her stage work and films.
