Noé Soulier


Portrait of Noé Soulier

In 2022, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels is supporting Noé Soulier for his creation First Memory.

French dancer and choreographer Noé Soulier was trained at CNSMD in Paris, Canada’s National Ballet School and P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. He participated in the Pavillon artist-in-residence program at the Palais de Tokyo, and won first prize at the 2010 Danse Élargie competition, an event organized by Théâtre de la Ville and the Musée de la Danse. 

His work explores dance and choreography through a multitude of devices and environments. His productions Removing and Faits et Gestes, Second Quartet, created for the L.A. Dance Project and Les Vagues, stimulate bodily memory through movements directed at non-existent objects and events. He developed these same principles in his book Actions, Mouvements et Gestes, as well as his performance Mouvement sur Mouvement

In the choreographed exhibition Performing Art, created at Centre Pompidou, museum professionals become the performers, executing careful and delicate movements to hang and install a selection of artwork from the collection of the Parisian institution. Noé Soulier has been head of the National Center for Contemporary Dance in Angers since 2020.
