How does a dancer that gets older evolve? Which experiences does he carry on? From the discovery of the path of the dancer Frédéric Tavernini, who has danced pieces by Maurice Bejart, Mats Ek, Trisha Brown, William Forsythe or Angelin Prejlocaj, is born the desire to create a portrait: a personal story where the gestures tell the works that were performed, underlying accents, intentions and articulations.

Between the perception and the signification of movements, Noé Soulier continues to decipher dance, this time by interrogating the descriptive power of gestures: can the body of the dancer exposea dance, show it or tell it without actually performing it? Through these questions, the spectator is led to reconstitute the memory of these dances from the signs they left in the flesh of the artist. Following Frédéric Tavernini step by step, Noé Soulier draws a history that reveal the implicit discourse of movement.
