Constantina is coordinating “The Slowest Wave” project, where the brain waves of Butoh dancers will be recorded as they dance. Butoh is both a form of an avant-garde dance, born in Japan in the 1950s, and a contemplative movement practice, similar to meditation, Tai Chi, or yoga. The artistic module of the project is led by Vangeline, who has choreographed a 60-minute ensemble Butoh piece, on a soundscape  informed by techniques of brainwave entrainment, composed by Ray Sweeten. The first iteration of this project premiered at Triskelion Arts, in Brooklyn, NY. 

 

In February 2023, the dancers' brain activity will be recorded for a pilot study at the University of Houston, Texas, in collaboration with Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal and Sadye Paez (Rockefeller University), culminating in a live performance, with real-time visualization of the dancers’ neural synchrony and slow brain wave activity.
