Les gestes de la danse : Noé Soulier

Les gestes de la danse : Noé Soulier

Les gestes de la danse

 Through these different episodes, "Les gestes de la danse" (Dance gestures) invites choreographers accustomed to Chaillot to question the gesture of their choice. 

With Carolyn Carlson, José Montalvo, Tatiana Julien, Jann Gallois, Noé Soulier, Abou Lagraa, Michèle Noiret and Olivier Dubois. 

Soulier, Noé

Born in Paris in 1987, Noé Soulier studied at the National Ballet School of Canada and PARTS in Brussels. He received a master degree in philosophy at La Sorbonne University (Paris IV) and took part in Palais de Tokyo’s residency program: Le Pavillon.
 

In 2010, he won the first prize of the competition Danse Élargie, organized by Le Théâtre de la Ville in Paris and Le Musée de la Danse with the trio « Little Perceptions » in which he started an ongoing research on ways of defining movement. With the solo « Movement on Movement » (2013), he dissociates gestures from speech to question how they collaborate to create meaning.
 

In 2014, he explored the syntax of ballet vocabulary with « Corps de ballet » for the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine. In « Movement Materials » (2014) and « Removing » (2015), he develops further the research initiated with Little perceptions on the perception and interpretation of movement.
 

In October 2016, he publishes « Actions, mouvements et gestes », a choreographic research that takes the form of a book, with the press of the Centre national de la danse.

In July 2020, he has taken over the direction of the Centre national de danse contemporaine d’Angers (CNDC).

Chaillot-Théâtre national de la Danse

The Théâtre National de Chaillot is  one of the five French national theatres (public institutions whose  missions are defined by the State) and the only one to have a project  built around and based on dance. Under the double supervision of the  Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Ministry of Budget, it has  been directed since 2011 by the choreographer and dancer Didier  Deschamps.


The legend of Chaillot

Installed at the heart of the Palais de Chaillot, the Théâtre  National de Chaillot, that became in 2016 Chaillot – National Theatre of  Dance, is one of the most prestigious cultural institutions of Paris,  not only for the unique place it has in the history of performing arts –  namely with the great adventure of the National Popular Theatre founded  by Firmin Gémier, then carried and developed by the mythical  personality of Jean Vilar – but also in that of France and the world as  it is in the big theatre room that the Universal Declaration of Human  Rights was signed on the 10th of December 1948. An  exceptional venue in the capital, the theatre can welcome each night  more than 1 600 spectators, in its three rooms (Salle Jean Vilar of 1  200 seats, Salle Firmin Gémier of 390 seats, Studio Maurice Béjart of  100 seats). Its Grand Foyer facing the Trocadéro Fountain, the Eiffel  Tower and the Champ-de-Mars, permanently offers one of the most famous  views in the world. The public spaces of the theatre are also host to an  important collection of sculptures, paintings, frescoes and pastels  signed by the greatest artists of their time: Paul Belmondo, Louis  Billotey, Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Brianchon, Roger Chapelain-Midy,  Maurice Denis, Othon Friesz, Henri Laurens, Aristide Maillol as well as  Édouard Vuillard.
