Demain

Multiform choreographic piece for four assistants, one cameraman and one dancer.

"The desire rises in me to express my malaise mixed with astonishment, caused by the spectacles of our chaotic and violent world. I increasingly ask myself how this world that surrounds me — and that's often so strange to me — influences my creations, in terms of both style and substance.
Some events, experienced or perceived, hit me with an unsuspected force. It becomes hard to ignore them. For example, on all the continents, the bees are ceasing to fly, exhausted, and die without us understanding the strange communications that link them. They no longer produce honey, no longer fertilise the plants and disappear. This noble insect is found in all our customs and images, our memories and myths. Its disappearance produces within me an emotion that I am not yet able to name.
Is the death of the bees a metaphor for our world and the destiny of our society?"

Michèle Noiret

DEMAIN, multiform choreographic piece for four assistants, one cameraman and a dancer, interpreted by Michèle Noiret, has been created and presented at Théâtre National from 24 to 28 March 2009. Michèle Noiret lets herself be taken over by a character struck by the unacceptable of the world. Her questions, her revolt, her interior life and her hyper-sensuality are at the heart of this choreography, which weaves links between different theatrical writings. Alain Lagarde's scenography and the lighting by Xavier Lauwers place the spectator in the ambiguity of a laboratory where the experiment is unknown. Images taken on the fly and short films created by the artist Aliocha Van der Avoort plunge the dance stage into a ‘dance-cinema' that Michèle Noiret explores throughout her creations. A meaning suddenly appears, disappears, returns metamorphosed. The original score developed by composers Todor Todoroff and Stevie Wishart transforms and intertwines the sound textures of the second movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony.

The quest of the choreographer, since the very beginning and in all variations and metamorphoses, has never ceased to question the human and, in their multiple dimensions, beings. But what beings? Because if Michèle Noiret's intention is indubitably anchored in the current reality of which she is both a tender and ironic, sometimes even incisive, observer, she cultivates an intensive art of transmutation, reformulation and interpretation. If she is able to take her inspiration from the spectacle of the world, it is by metamorphosing it in her imagination, transforming it in contact with an interior world that leaves nothing unchanged. What's left is astonishingly dense.

Noiret, Michèle

After graduating from the Mudra School in Brussels founded by Maurice Béjart, Michèle Noiret met Karlheinz Stockhausen. She studied the composer's gesture notation system and worked with him as a soloist for fifteen years. During this rigorous, precise experience she founded her own company in 1986. She is the author of more than 30 choreographies, each of which provides access to a singular world that is poetic but always unsettling. Since 1997 she has introduced interactive technologies of sound and image in to her choreographic researches, questioning our perceptions of time and space. Using these tools, she likes to mix things up and spread discord. She has also always devoted a major part of her research to developing a fine, precise, altogether personal choreographic writing. The creation of a genuine dance-cinema and the construction of choreographic characters are other traits of her work. Since 2006 she has been an associate artist at the Théâtre National in Brussels. Michèle Noiret is a member of the Académie royale de Belgique.
