The Cultural Potential of Buto: On the Conception of Transculturality in Wolfgang Welsch

In the buto dance, born originally in Japan after the Second World War, the performer is devoid of his social identity and concentrates on the body as such. Hijikata and Ono — the creators of the dance — utilized the elements of ritual, philosophical and artistic traditions constituent both of the culture of Japan and the culture of the West. In my article I attempt to answer the question in what way the deprivation of one’s social identity can create a trans-cultural field of communication allowing a new form of artistic expression.
