"There are moments of breathtaking beauty in this book--many of them--as Fraleigh shares her deep, personal engagement with butoh history and its current expressions. She expertly weaves philosophical reflections through engaging descriptions of dances she has seen to bring butoh to life for her readers as a global phenomenon that is transforming and healing western values." Kimerer LaMothe, Ph.D., author of Nietzsche's Dancers: Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, and the Revaluation of Christian ValuesFrom the Publisher:
Both a refraction of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and a protest against Western values, butoh is a form of Japanese dance theater that emerged in the aftermath of World War II. Sondra Fraleigh chronicles the growth of this provocative art form from its midcentury founding under a sign of darkness to its assimilation in the twenty-first century as a poignant performance medium with philosophical and political implications. Employing intellectual and aesthetic perspectives to reveal the origins, major figures, and international development of the dance, Fraleigh documents the range and variety of butoh artists around the world with first-hand knowledge of butoh performances from 1973 to 2008.
