Abstract

Butoh retroactively constructs its origins even as it denies access to them. Seen as Derridean hauntology, butoh serves to excavate a butoh subtext from within European and Japanese modernism, a vexed promise of futurity that did not (could not) eventuate. History’s spectral presence inhabits and traumatizes nervous bodies.
