Publisher's Description

This is the first reprint of the ‘Association of Dance Experience’ (1960), featuring the work of Japanese choreographer Tatsumi Hijikata, founder of the butoh style of dance performance. The art form is known for its “distressing” nature, and is characterised by playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics, and extreme or absurd environments. The reprint is published together with a facsimile edition of ‘The Dance Experience 2’ (1961), which also documents Hijikata’s creative expression. The set contains numerous photographs by Eikoh Hosoe of Kazuo Ohno (another key figure in the emergence of butoh), Tatsumi Hijikata, and famed author and playwright Yukio Mishima.
