TRAILER FAITS ET GESTES - NOE SOULIER

Faits et gestes

Noé Soulier

Faits et gestes explores the different status of movement. The dancers zoom in on the multiple ways in which gestures suggest movement: the build up to a jump or a pirouette, reaching for an imaginary opponent, identifying, selecting or transmitting movements. The movements are not isolated, but refer to something beyond. What’s absent forms itself in the mind of the viewer ... which completes the dance phrase, as it were. Noé Soulier found parallels in the baroque compositions of Johan Jakob Froberger, performed live during the piece. These funeral orations have explicit rhetorical power. Just as the movements of the dancers, the musical  gures do not delineate meaning but instead evoke emotions.
