Dancing Into Darkness is Sondra Horton Fraleigh's chronological diary of her deepening understanding of and appreciation for this art form, as she moves from a position of aesthetic response as an audience member to that of assimilation as a student. As a student of Zen and butoh, Fraleigh witnesses her own artistic and personal transformation through essays, poems, interviews, and reflections spanning twelve years of study, much of it in Japan. Numerous performance photographs and original calligraphy by Fraleigh's Zen teacher Shodo Akane illuminate her words.The pieces of Dancing Into Darkness cross boundaries, just as butoh anticipates a growing global amalgamation. \u0022Butoh is not an aesthetic movement grafted onto Western dance, \u0022 Fraleigh concludes, \u0022and Western dance may be more Eastern than we have been able to see. \u0022
