French artist Jérôme Bel is considered to be one of the top ranking experimental choreographers currently working in Europe. On the strength of just six pieces of work, (at the time of this tour) his status as a dance maker has been considerable, and his particular brand of contemporary dance has been performed to great acclaim around Europe. He is at the forefront of a new generation of dance makers whose work continually shifts between the boundaries of dance, live art and performance and which transcends definition or labelling.

The company toured 3 pieces form their repertoire Shirtologie (1997), The Last Performance (1998) and the five person company signature piece Jérôme Bel (1995) to a variety of arts venues throughout May 2001.

Drawing inspiration from semiotics (the language of symbols and codes), and the minimalist definition of dance as movement in time and space, Jérôme Bel creates performances infused with language, images and ideas, which may provoke, entertain and inspire, but certainly won’t leave you feeling indifferent.
