Carte de visite
March 2014

Michèle Noiret plays with her own image and takes us along on an unexpected voyage, made with a certain detachment through the use of allusions, real emotion and a certain pleasurable playfulness.

April 2013
The major theme of the project is based on the following: "a hallucinatory reality?". Ever more precise connections will be woven between performing arts, choreography in particular, and the filmed image. The première took place at the Théâtre National in Brussels in April 2013, ahead of the French première at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris in May 2013.

Hôtel Folia
May 2011

Commission by Frédéric Flamand, director of the Ballet National de Marseille. Creation for 10 dancers of the Ballet on 6 and 7 May 2011 at the Opéra de Marseille. Punctuated by the completely contrasting rhythm of a choreographic composition, the piece is put together through the simultaneous and collaborative investigations. Worlds are concocted from pictures taken on the spot or pre-recorded, creating a universe where speed rubs shoulders with immobility. Worlds enigmatic, intimate, fragile or violent, but always profoundly human.

Territoires intimes
March 2004
This performance is loosely based on Virginia Woolf’s novel “The Waves”. Six human beings, six interior monologues whose solitary curves meet and intermingle. The lighting, projected images and soundscapes intensify each character’s innermost feelings and diffract them to multiply the echoes of their presence.

Sait-on jamais?
May 2003
Mes jours et mes nuits
