The dance vocabulary of Pé S. Vermeersch is a fusion of western and eastern principles, traditional as well as contemporary ones, and goes together with a philosophical attitude towards art and dance.

She studied traditional dance forms like bharatanatyam and kathakali in India and Noh in Japan. She has researched very intensively the butoh dance movement with many prominent figure and is strongly nourished by (the bodyweatherwork of) Min Tanaka. She was a equally, for many years, a student of, and dancer for the butoh master and eurythmist Akira Kasai.

She proposes different kinds of workshops : the ‘intensive workshops’ designed to offer new tools for contemporary dancers , the sensibility walks open to all levels and ages, the workshops for children and a course exploring the theoretical and practical features of the butohdance movement.
