The Non-Dance Choreographer

Is Jérôme Bel a choreographer or a threatre artist? Bel, who has “become an international cult figure in the dance world by challenging its conventions” like working in the cracks of movement. “The question became, always, ‘How do I produce a show without dance?’ In France, we call my work conceptual, where the idea is more important than the realization. I’m not producing dance. I’m working at the borderline of dance.”
