SLICE is a fleshy video art project created by Swedish choreographer and butoh artist
SU-EN in collaboraton 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 eachother, 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 sound track in the film and the stage performance is composed by Brittish composer Lee Berwick.
