Dance of darkness ( visu )
1 edition published in 1990 in No Linguistic Content and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Edin and Ethel Velez's Dance of darkness is a video homage to several of the most important Buthoh practioners, including Kazuo Ohno, the late Tatsumo Hijikata and the troupes Dai Rakuda Kan, Byakko Sha and Hakutoboh. Butho, roughly translated as "dance of darkness," is the poerful and mystical performance style that probes the Japanese national identity."
