Presented by France-Atlanta 2016
6:30 p.m: Doors open - Cocktail bar (cash only) and complimentary food available.
7:30 p.m: REMOVING (remixed) performed by Lucas Bassereau, Anna Massoni, Nans Pierson & Noé Soulier
In this piece, Soulier seeks to explore actions motivated by a practical purpose such as hitting, avoiding or reaching. Unlike movements determined geometrically or mechanically, dancers share a vocabulary of gestures with the audience. The result is a fascinating composition interlaced with organized solos and duos. Soulier’s gesture approach is always puzzling, questioning one’s perception and certainties.
At 29, Noé Soulier is considered one of the most innovative contemporary artists in his field. Both a dancer and a choreographer, he has already showcased his work all around Europe and has brought his work to some of the most unique of spaces, from the contemporary art foundation of Louis Vuitton in Paris to the streets of London, the stages of Vienna, Versailles and more. His experimental and intellectual approach aims to leave the viewer with a sense of intrigue.
Recently appointed Associated Artist of the Centre de Développement Chorégraphique in Toulouse, France, Noé Soulier is coming to Atlanta for a much-anticipated US debut with a special version of his latest performance: REMOVING Remixed.
