Noé Soulier: Movement Materials

Noé Soulier produces performances, ballets and installations. He trained at the Centre National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse [National Centre of Music and Dance] in Paris, the National Ballet School of Canada and PARTS - Brussels, and holds a degree in Philosophy. He questions how gestures are perceived and interpreted through multiple devices: choreography, installation, theoretical testing and performance. In Mouvement sur Mouvement [Movement on Movement] (2013) and Signe Blanc [White Symbol] (2012), he introduces discord between speech and the accompanying gestures to question how they work together to develop something meaningful. Soulier is a former artist-in-residence at the Palais de Tokyo Pavilion, and won first prize in 2010 at the Danse Élargie [Expanded Dance] competition in Paris. He has also performed at the Paris Autumn Festival (2013) and collaborated with the Nancy-based Ballet de Lorraine (2014).


Noé Soulier creates movement sequences motivated by practical goals with five dancers. Movement Materials seeks to question the perception and reading of movement by continually juxtaposing movements and intentions. Movements appear in turn as expectations, signs, starts or approach runs. The dancers will occupy various areas of the Fondation, and the presence of their bodies will mingle with the silent musicality of their breathing, their respiration and the friction of their movements.
