Noé Soulier

Born in Paris in 1987, Noé Soulier studied at the National Ballet School of Canada and P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. He received a master’s degree in philosophy at La Sorbonne University (Paris IV) and took part in Palais de Tokyo’s residency programme: 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.
From 2015 to 2019, he was in residency at the Centre National de la danse in Pantin. His creations have been presented, among others, by Théâtre national de Chaillot, Théâtre de la Ville, Festival d’Automne à Paris, Centre Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo, Biennale de la danse de Lyon, Montpellier Danse, Mucem, Sadler’s Wells (London), Performa (New York), MOMA PS1 (New York), The Wallis (Los Angeles), La Biennale di Venezia, Romaeuropa Festival, Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels), Kaaitheater (Brussels), Tanz im August (Berlin), Theater Freiburg, Tanzquartier Wien, Teatro Municipal do Porto.

He choreographed pieces for Ballet du Rhin (“D’un pays lointain”, 2011), Ballet de Lorraine (“Corps de ballet”, 2014), L.A. Dance Project (“Second Quartet”, 2017), Lyon Opera Ballet (“Self Duet”, 2021), Nederlands Dans Theater (“About Now”, 2023) and Trisha Brown Dance Company (“In the Fall”, 2023).

In July 2020, he took the direction of Cndc – Angers (National center for contemporary dance), a unique institution in the choreographic field that brings together a centre for choreographic creation, a graduate school of contemporary dance and a dance programme.

The choreographed exhibition “Performing Art” (2017), created at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and then at Mucem in Marseille, reverses the usual position of dance in the museum by moving the exhibition to the stage, transforming the art handlers into performers and the installation of collections into choreography. In projects such as the book “Action, movement et gesture” (2016) and the performance “Movement sur Movement” (2013), he analyses different ways to conceive movements that offer multiple ways to experience the body.

As of: February 2024
