Butoh – Body and the world

The book by SU-EN and photographer Maja Sandberg. With texts compiled and edited by Gilles Kennedy. This dual-language publication in English and Swedish presents choreographer and Butoh artist SU-EN and her specific Butoh body and Butoh world.

The artistic collaboration in this visually impressive book includes full-page photography by Maja Sandberg placing Butoh bodies in outdoor environments such as a stone island in the Swedish archipelago, a scrapyard and a chicken-coop.

The text and prose notes are compiled with British dance writer Gilles Kennedy to introduce the training that crafts the Butoh body and to provide insight into the contemporary performance that results from that work. The text includes an outline of the historical processes that lead to the birth of this radical dance form in Japan after World War II.

Format 191 x 230 cm, soft dust jacket with front and back flaps, 84 pages, 40 pages with colour and monochromatic images.
