Description

Born in Paris in 1962,* Jérôme Bel* studied at the Centre National de Dance Contemporaine of Angers and went on to dance for myriad choreographers in France and Italy. He is a significant figure in a group of contemporary European choreographers who question the fundamental parameters of their own practice—and of choreography in general.   

Bel is acclaimed for a unique provocation to strip away all stage artifice in an effort to create a more honest connection between the watchers and performers. His conceptual work is focused on altering expectations and his productions are legendary for stretching the boundaries of the philosophical underpinnings of dance.
