In collaboration with the Romaeuropa Festival and the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels presented Passages by Noé Soulier.
An outdoor walking production, Passages is distinguished by its mission to reinvent itself in each new location chosen by the choreographer and the dancers.
Before the screening of his latest short film, Fragments, in the Grand Salon, Noé Soulier unveiled a new orchestration for each module of Passages’ choreography, created especially for the gardens of Villa Medici. Each module inhabited a different setting: the audience first discovered the dancers on the terrace and the Piazzale before reaching the Loggia, which served as the stage for the last tableau of this project. Passages was dedicated to the movement of bodies and their evolution in space.
