About the Author:

Makiko Yamanashi holds a degree in art history and philosophy from UCL. She belongs to the Opera/Musical Study Group at the Tsubouchi Theatre Memorial Museum, Waseda University, and also works as a coordinator of cultural events in Japan and Europe. In Takarazuka City, she acts as a member of the Takarazuka Film Festival Committee and the Takarazuka International Friendship Association.

Review:

Makiko Yamanashi erhellt die Geschichte des Takarazuka-Theaters, das in den Zeiten des japanischen Imperialismus auch zu Propagandazwecken missbraucht und unter anderem fur mehrere Tourneen in der besetzten Mandschurei eingesetzt wurde. Die Autorin gibt, und dies macht die Lekture besonders wertvoll, einen Einblick in die sozialen Hintergrunde und die Gender-Aspekte der Revue, die zu Unrecht bisher noch nicht als eine eigenstandige Tradition der japanischen Popularkultur anerkannt worden ist. Neue Zuricher Zeitung, (14.07.12 / Nr.162 / Seite 56 / Teil 01)"
