Is it possible for movement to speak for itself? Noé Soulier answers with his lecture performance “Mouvement sur Mouvement” (2013), a research on movement’s speech creation chance and, on the other hand, the power of creating speech by movement itself. His research starts with the physical reproduction of some William Forsythe’s Improvisation technologies sequences, in which the German choreographer uses different tools to generate and analyse movement. Soulier speaks about Classic technique and Cunningham; he describes the task n.21 by Yvonne Rainer and Trisha Brown’s mechanical movement; he quotes different scholars and artists to end his lecture with engineer Auguste Choisy’s consideration about Parthenon measurements.
