Anatomical Theatre at Museum Gustavianum
This choreographic event incorporated lectures by renowned professor Karin Johannisson, Uppsala University. Through our collaboration we investigated the areas of body and mind.
SU-EN Butoh Company with fellow artists staged a dissection in the Anatomical theatre in Uppsala – one of the oldest anatomical theatres in Europe. Here dissections were performed until 1766 in front of medicine students and paying audiences.
In this ongoing 3-hour public event, dance, performance, action, interactive sound and video together executed a dissection of the human body. Also a gutting and cutting of a fish took place, spreading the smell of the inside throughout the space.
