Introducing discourses of colonization and semi-colonialization to his interpretation, Adam Broinowski provides a way to understand Ankoku Butoh as a reaction to the condition of occupation, conceived broadly as a condition suffered by those who are the targets of concerted state violence, spanning from concentration camps, civilian bombing, and the atomic bombs, to the war on terror, and mass surveillance of the contemporary moment. Himself a performer, Broinowskis interpretive paradigms are especially valuable not only in suggesting sources of Butohs global relevance but also in attending convincingly to the specificities of performative experience and their significance. It is one of the few historical treatments which appears adequate to the profundity and idiosyncrasy of Butoh performance itself. --Justin Jesty, University of Washington, USA
