About this book

This book traces the history of 'girls' aesthetics,' where adult Japanese women create art works about 'girls' that resist motherhood, from the modern to the contemporary period and their manifestation in Japanese women's theatrical and dance performance and visual arts including manga, film, and installation arts.

Reviews

“Nobuko Anan’s Contemporary Japanese Women’s Theatre and Visual Arts joins a fleet of scholarly books published in the last several decades on Japanese girls’ culture. Solidly researched, this study integrates Japanese, European, and American scholarship, combining in-depth analysis of specific theatre works and theoretical concepts as well as historical overviews. It enhances our understanding of Japanese performance since the 1970s and is a welcome addition to the field.” (Ayako Kano, Theatre Journal, Vol. 59 (4), December, 2017)​
