The Whole Beast  is a solo work, created and performed by Lee Su-Feh, in which the dancer is butcher, meat, cook and the cooked.

Mining the singularity of her own body, Lee makes connections from bone and tissue to memory, dreams and desires. With fine precision and startling intimacy, Lee carves the spaces in and around the body, uncovering recipes and stories along the way, offering up a view of a life shaped and affected by food, love and loss.
 
The Whole Beast had its World Premiere March 2008 at the Festival Les Antipodes, Brest, France
Canadian Premiere October 9 -11, Scotiabank Dance Centre, Vancouver
