Noé Soulier [FR/BE]
07.10 – 08.10.2011
In Ideography, dancer and choreographer Noé Soulier links the philosophical to the artistic, exploring the relations between movements and thoughts.
He does not start out from a single piece of philosophical
writing or tradition, but combines disparate theoretical argumentations
which at first sight have little to do with each other. He uses strategies from music, dance and film to compose this
Far from defending a thesis, he engages the audience in a thought experiment structured around dramaturgical principles (rhythm of speech, expectations, etc.). The resulting polyphony of thoughts is an opportunity to revisit classical theoretical discourse through the live experience of a construction in progress.
Ideography is created by Noé Soulier and his audience.
Noé Soulier took courses in France and
Canada and completed his training at PARTS in Brussels. In the meantime
he also learned to play the harpsichord and this year will be completing
his Master’s degree in philosophy at the Sorbonne.
During his time at PARTS he was active as a performer in the work of Daniel Linehan a.o. His own work includes the solo The Kingdom of Shades and the trio Little Perceptions. With Little Perceptions he was laureate of the first prize of the Danse Élargie competition in June 2010, organized by Le Théâtre de la Ville – Paris and Le Musée de la Danse – Rennes.
