Noé Soulier / France

Movement on Movement

concept and interpretation: Noé Soulier
production: WP Zimmer
coproduction: Festival d’automne à Paris, La Ménagerie de verre (Paris), Kaaïtheater (Bruxelles), Bruges Concertgebouw with the support of  Centre National de la Danse (Paris) thanks to Forsythe Company
duration: 40 min

In this project, Noé Soulier reproduces physically sequences from the Improvisation Technologies where William Forsythe demonstrates different tools used to generate and analyze movements. In these sequences, Forsythe makes movements that comment on other movements by pointing, underlining, and foregrounding specific elements. These movements are not Forsythe’s choreography, they are what happens when he explains his approach to movement. By using them as dance material, Soulier gives them another status: what was an explanation of the material becomes the material itself. He thus addresses the question: how can movement be about movement?
