Flavia Ghisalberti, (*1963) is an artist, poet and performer. Since 1998 she has worked intensively with Butoh dance, exploring the limits of body and mind and what these are willing to endure. Her butoh style is individual and independent of established butoh schools. She co-founded the Butoh group „In Between“ and is director of the bi-annual and trinational festival Butoh-Off in Basel. She performs throughout Europe, Russia and the United States and collaborates closely with Valentin Tsin. Valentin Tszin (*1984) dancer with Chinese-Russian roots, practiced Teakwondo, was a comedian artist and founded the Poema theatre in Moscow. In his work he is looking for radical forms of expression with which to create atmospheric „derailment“ and transformation.
