Describing the onstage magic and the backstage hierarchy that is Kabuki, this book looks at the 500-year-old spectacle of dance, music and elaborate costume from an actor's point of view."
Kabuki is theater in the most vibrant sense of the term: brilliant spectacle and stirring action in which the actor himself is given every chance to display his virtuosity. The stage, immensely wide, is capable of an amazing variety of pictorial illusions.
More than 500 eye-popping illustrations and photos recreate pictorially the famous Danjuro Eighteen Kabuki dramas.
A seminal classic, it provides a cross section of Japanese theater that gives the reader a sampler of its beauty and power.
