WHITE – BIALY

March 8, 2009
Scen Studio 4, Stockholm

Solo examination project
by SU-EN for Anna Bralkowska/TO-EN Butoh Company

White – the fading shade of innocence. Reflections of simplicity, absence of colour. White-noise tensing up the space, limbs that are prepared by madness. White lies, eye balls and white sea that mirrors the infinity. Deformed nothingness and everything.

________________________________________________________________________

The examination ceremony was led by SU-EN and
writer Gilles Kennedy.

This solo Butoh project is the dancer’s final examination after completing the studies as an apprentice with SU-EN and SU-EN Butoh Company. The dancer receives a name and in this way the lineage is established. The lineage from SU-EN’s body and work is a link from the
work and body of Yoko Ashikawa and the Tomoe Shizune
& Hakutobo group.

Through this examination event, the dancer has SU-EN’s support to develop her own work and to teach Butoh using the SU-EN Butoh method as a starting point and base.
