As always, it's frustrating and difficult to read about dance, especially when videos of the dances described in the book are not widely available. Nevertheless, a solid introduction to Butoh which elucidates the differences between the dancing of Hijikata and Ohno.
Fraleigh's prose can be a trifle new age-y and irritating at times, but for the most part, it does not get in the way.

Shelves: lit-crit, for-school
basic introduction to butou, with emphasis on the word "basic." what's kind of neat is that the book gears itself more towards practitioners than academics, and contains a lot of interviews / butou-fu / photos you might not necessarily find in a scholarly book.
