A record of a performance of the radical avant-garde Japanese dance genre, Ankokuh Buton, or Dance of Darkness, created in the 1960s as a defiant response to the conservative mainstream dance of the time. Butoh is characterized by lack of traditional elegance or grace, concentration on realistic adoptions of peasant life and a philosophy that dance be a method of individualistic living rather than an aesthetic or artistic act.
