ISABELLA SOUPART is a Polish-Ukrainian choreographer, dancer, director and visual artist based in Brussels. She is also an actress who came to public attention in the film Le Fils by the Dardenne brothers.
Her productions are presented on national and international stages as well as in numerous festivals. She is regularly invited to present her work in museums, where she develops new dance formats associated with research on sound, space, light and architecture.
SILENCE, the new creation by choreographer Isabella Soupart, delves into the heart of the book 21 Lessons on the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari. For this production she continues her collaboration with pianist Guy Vandromme and invites the Swedish-Swiss Silas Bieri to cure the sound design.
In this work Isabella Soupart analyzes the challenges of contemporary technology, the impact of social media, political issues and the way we show resilience in handling despair and hope.
She has created a Pop-electro ballet, in which nine dancers play with the codes of contemporary dance, in the spirit of pop-rock-punk culture. A performance in which the inclusiveness of this world is proposed as a quest and a response to 21st century globalisation.
In November 2021, STRETCH was presented as part of the 14th Biennial of Contemporary Art in Havana. The choreographer remodels her project with 20 Cuban dancers and musicians and part of her European team at the Museo Nacional de Belas Artes Cuba. The hall, the outdoor entrance platform and the patio of the museum proved to be ideal for the production, also considering the confrontation with the installations of the Cuban artist Kcho, whose theme is illegal immigration.
Isabella Soupart is looking for dancers with strong contemporary technique, a ballet background and acting and singing skills for the new production in October 2022. Auditions will be held at P.A.R.T.S.
