Butoh is a radical dance form developed in Japan in conjunction with experiments in expressionism in literature and the fine arts; dancer/choreographer SU-EN established butoh in Sweden in the 1990s after training as an apprentice to the legendary dancer Yoko Ashikawa in Japan; this book is a collaboration between SU-EN and photographer Maja Sandberg; the black & white and color photographs present Butoh dancers in outdoor settings in an attempt to investigate the relationship between the body and the world; the text by SU-EN and British journalist Gilles Kennedy introduces the method which creates the butoh body to provide insight into the processes which take place in butoh training; text in both Swedish and English (white pictorial cover with color photo of butoh dancer on the front, very slight edgewear, otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy).
