Sensational Knowledge is a deft example of contemporary self-reflexive ethnography combining dance and performance studies amongst others notably Asian philosophy and ethnomusicology. Jonathan Zilberg, Leonardo Reviews"
Tomie Hahn has produced an extraordinary study of the complex ways in which nihon buyo, a form of traditional Japanese dance, is transmitted and translated between bodies. Hahn mines her lifelong experience as a dancer in the Tachibana school as a means of exploring how culture comes to be embodied, refigured, and passed on through this art form. Her thoughtful analyses build from this lived experience as the ground upon which the cogent, meticulous, narrations that she develops can inform the reader most clearly, and signify with the utmost richness and intensity. Reginald Jackson, Journal of Asian Studies"
Sensational Knowledge is essential reading for dance scholars and for performers studying Japanese art forms and their transmission; it is equally valuable for those interested in how culture is embodied through movement. Simply put, Hahn s Sensational Knowledge is exquisite. Marta Robertson, Dance Chronicle"
