Text by Antonin Artaud.
Translated by Ratna Cartier-Bresson.
Commented by Béryl de Zoete.

This revised edition of a book first published in 1954 offers Henri Cartier-Bresson’s vision of sacred dancing, taken while Bali was still essentially preserved from tourism. Through these exceptionally powerful images, the photographer offers us a chance to become immersed in the spectacle of Balinese theatre and to realize the importance of the dances that are at the heart of the culture’s popular and religious traditions.

The photographs are introduced with Antonin Artaud’s text Balinese Theatre, and are accompanied by comments drawn from Beryl de Zoete’s books: both writers have become legendary figures.
