We are happy to announce the new publication: „Atsushi Takenouchi Jinen Butoh”.
This book is an effect of long lasting conversations between Atsushi Takenouchi and Alan Frank, who summarized them into the text you’ll be able to read soon.
The story behind this book is not free of bumps and dificulties. Just like the life of the artist to whom it is dedicated. This book is not as much about Atsushi, as it is Atsushi himself who lays bare his entire being as honestly as his performances do. It is an authentic record of his life, as well as a testament to many friendships that help to overcome life’s obstacles and test the very essence of humanity. This book is also an expression of gratitude from those who were meant to encounter Atsushi Takenouchi on their path.
We follow Atsushi’s personal life – meeting his family and friends, and entering the world of Butoh of the 1980s. This colorful narrative engages us immediately. We encounter an environment full of interesting characters and legendary figures that have imprinted subtle marks on the soul of this young man and confirmed the right choice of his direction in life.
What is Jinen Butoh? Find out for yourself!
Deep appreciation from Atsushi Takenouchi
This book is the result of Jinen Butoh. With my profound gratitude, I am returning it to all the people I have met and to Jinen – all beings of this Univers.
I would like to thank to Hiroko, with whom I live, for lifelong devotion and collaboration.
I was relying on Alan’s help – I am deeply grateful for the many years of our collaboration on this book as co-author.
My deepest heartfelt gratitude goes to publisher Anita, who supported me as if I were family.
I would like to express my appreciation for everything I have experienced so far.
The book was published together with The National Institute of Music and Dance within “Publishing programme 2021” project.
