Atomic Event is an ongoing collaboration project between SU-EN Butoh Company, The Svedberg Laboratory in Uppsala, composer Graham Lewis and computer artist Rickard Sporrong/Rrong Production.

In December 2000 the first event took place in the Blue Hall, a smaller room for specific research on particles. In November 2001 the second event took place in the Celcius ring -
the big accelerator.

Audiences were guided around the facilities in groups of 20 people and entered the performance space for 20 minutes.

The performance event contains dance by SU-EN butoh workshop project, original sound score and live mixing and inter active computer / video art. Each event lasted for approximately 4 hours and was therfore an experiment in itself. Approximately 250 people each year visited the The Svedberg Laboratory.
