ATOMIC EVENT

2000 – 2001

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 Celsius 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 interactive
computer / video art. Each event lasted for approximately 4 hours and was therefore an experiment in itself. Approximately 250 people each year visited the The Svedberg Laboratory.

Supported by: Dance in Uppland, Uppsala County Cultural Council and Uppsala City Cultural Council
