Takarazuka

Sexual Politics And Popular Culture In Modern Japan

eBook - 1998
Rate this:
The all-female Takarazuka Revue is world-famous today for its rococo musical productions, including gender-bending love stories, torridly romantic liaisons in foreign settings, and fanatically devoted fans. But that is only a small part of its complcated and complicit performance history. In this historically grounded analysis, anthropologist Jennifer Robertson draws from over a decade of fieldwork and archival research to explore how the Revue illuminates discourses of sexual politics, nationalism, imperialism and popular culture in 20th-century Japan.
