PROJECT

Signe Blanc (2012)

Signe blanc prolongs the research from The Kingdom of Shades within ballet mime vocabulary. In the solo, a dancer executes a sequence of movements referring more or less literally to objects or gestures. The relationship between movement and what it represents operates at a symbolic register. The dancer further blurs the link between body language and spoken language, by enouncing actions that do not correspond to the gestures executed. Noé Soulier explores the polyphonic potential of pantomime by mixing the voice and gestures of the dancer, so composing a new landscape of signs.
