This year SU-EN Butoh Company celebrates 20 years of artistic activities!
The company was founded in Tokyo in 1992, after SU-EN recieved her name from Tomoe Shizune & Hakutobo through the performance Kaze no Cho.
This will be manifested through an art exhibition at Uppsala Art Museum – Visceral Space. There will be several rooms that SU-EN and collaboration partners fill with installations based on some of the company´s major pieces and projects. Most welcome to the exhibition!
We also release a catalogue mapping the 20 years, designed by Gunnar H Stening. The catalogue is available for free and can be ordered by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
