Event Description

Between Gestures is a one-week festival of performances, workshops, conversations, and screenings that connects Chicago to the European scene in contemporary performance and dance, presented in partnership with the Cultural Service of the Consulate of France and the Goethe-Institut in Chicago. The Dance Center will host performances and post-performance discussions with choreographers Noé Soulier and Pol Pi.

“What begins as an experiment becomes joyous exploration.” -Cultural Weekly

In Movement on Movement, Noé Soulier analyzes and describes different ways to conceive movements that aim to offer multiple ways to experience the body. By analyzing them, Soulier proposes different ways of focusing one’s attention on a given movement. Words and gestures interact with each other creating correspondences, frictions, and gaps. Using gestures from William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies as source material, Soulier investigates the ways in which we talk about movement and the ways in which movement generates discourse.
