Nobuko Anan explores what she calls 'girls' aesthetics'-the resistance to female material bodies-in Contemporary Japanese Women's Theatre and Visual Arts: Performing Girls' Aesthetics. By engaging with a wide range of theatre, dance, and visual arts (including installation arts and girls' manga) by artists and groups such as Yubiwa Hotel, Kisaragi Koharu, Yanagi Miwa, Hagio Moto, Studio Life, Kishida Rio, Ikeda Riyoko, the Takarazuka Revue, and KATHY, the book addresses four aspects of girls' aesthetics: time and space, two-dimensionality, issues of citizenship, and the love-and-hate relationship with the 'West.' It also situates these aesthetics within a history of Japanese society, performance, and visual arts, and particularly examines the intersections of the aesthetics and the post-war Japan-US relationship, the violent 1960s leftist movements, and the 1970s feminist activism. Girls' aesthetics provide another approach to feminist studies in performance and visual arts.
