Noé Soulier - The Kingdom of Shades
“The thread of tradition is broken,
and we have to read its authors as though
no one had ever read them before"
(Hannah Arendt, Between Past and Future)
This piece is an attempt to propose a different reading of the ballet legacy. Noé Soulier is trying to disrupt the inner organization of the vocabulary by selecting and isolating specific steps, remixing existing sequences, and editing heterogeneous phrases.
