Goodbye, dear Edwige, butch elegance, punk legend.
The cut on her face
The blood from under her skirt
A red fountain carries me
Towards my destiny
The cut in the sky
Out pour father's eyes
Dive deep in the snow
Cold seed for the spring
Harvest of my creativity
The cut on her face
Portal of our race
Spurned majesty sighs
For that cut!

From 1960 onwards, Hijikata directed a host of solo performances featuring Ohno. The first, Divine, was a tribute to the dying transvestite prostitute from Jean Genet's subversive 1943 novel Our Lady of the Flowers. From the beginning, Ohno was yin to Hijikata's yang. While some butoh dancers later came to embody an almost impenetrable stoicism, and others grotesque horror, Ohno expressed something more ethereal, feminine and ecstatic in his reveries.
