News

Due to the Coronavirus crisis in the world SU-EN Butoh Company has cancelled or postponed all performances until August, and then we will see how this develops.

Live performances are on pause. However creativity does not stop. Until we can meet each other live again – we want to share some visual and artistic material with you in the frame of The Window Project. Some material is already a few years old, some is new and some are work-in-progress, ideas that we never had time to investigate and some are just for fun.

To look outside. Watching the world through a window. To look to the inside, into the house. Through the window. To look into another person. Through their eyes – like windows.
Movement never stops. Life never ends. Dirt shines. Space cracks. Time laughs.
