– a visceral dissection

SLICE is a fleshy video art project created by Swedish choreographer and Butoh artist SU-EN in collaboration with video artist Rickard Sporrong.

The two artists have aimed to present the body as a living organism, a body where the inside and the outside are mixed in with each other, where movement and the living materials become one.

The video production SLICE plays a main part in the SU-EN Butoh Company’s solo dance production with the same title which has been performed around the world.The soundtrack in the film and the stage performance is composed by British composer Lee Berwick.

The film premiered at Uppsala International Short Film Festival 2003 and has been shown at various art and film festivals.
