Posters for talented Butoh dancer and choreographer Tatsumi Hijikata (1928-1986). Lately I have become interested in Butoh dance, while re-searching came across these amazing images. Many of these are posters and Adverts. I am unsure of who designed these works and know very little information, since the web sites I found were in Japanese. Tadanori Yokoo designed many posters for Hajikata and other dancers. Three up from the bottom there is a great one by Kiyoshi Awazu.
