SU-EN is appointed Honourable Artist of Uppsala (SE) 2019 with the motivation:
"... SU-EN is in a constantly exploring movement in her artistry - in Uppsala, Sweden and the world. SU-EN has for over 20 years provided the Japanese Butoh art with a center in nature in the Uppsala countryside in Haglund school in Almunge. SU-EN's strong commitment to culture in her hometown has enriched and developed Uppsala through new insights and perspectives on the importance of art for man and what it means to be an artist."

25-26 Jan 2019 the K.R.O.P.P Extended International dance and performance festival, curated by SU-EN will be held at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress (SE). Two days filled with strong physical expressions. The theme is Rebellion of the body. See the full program and all participants here.
IN THE FLESH is SU-EN's new solo in collaboration with ceramic artist Mari Anari and with music by Fabrice Bony. The work will premiere on 26 Jan 2019, the second day of the festival K.R.O.P.P. and it is inspired by Mari Anari's strong ceramic object. In the choreography of the performance, the relationship between the dancer's body and the objects is the tension itself.

Routledge Companion to Butoh Performance is now released. Editors are Bruce Baird and Rosemary Candelario. Two essays by SU-EN are included. Read more here.
