Noé Soulier associate artist 2016 – 2018

Noé Soulier explores the way we perceive and interpret body language using multiple forms: choreography, installation, theoretical essay, and performance art. In the solo Mouvement sur Mouvement (2013), he introduced a separation between discourse and body language to explore how they both participate in the creation of meaning. In Removing (2015), a piece for six dancers, he uses actions used to complete practical goals while hiding the goals themselves, thus offering a choreographic reading of these routine tasks. Born in Paris in 1987, Noé Soulier studied at the National Conservatory (CNSM) in Paris, at the École Nationale de Ballet du Canada, and at PARTS – Brussels. He earned a Master’s in philosophy from the Université de la Sorbonne (Paris IV) and participated in the residency program at the Palais de Tokyo: Le Pavillon. In 2010, he won first prize at the Danse Élargie contest, organized by the Théâtre de la Ville et le Musée de la Danse with Petites perceptions. He choreographed Corps de ballet with the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine in 2014.
