Jérôme Bel

Jérôme Bel (born 1964, Montpellier) is a prominent choreographer who produces a highly conceptual and critical works that addresses the apparatus within which dance is produced. Bel studied at the Centre National de Danse Contemporaine of Angers and went on to dance for a range of choreographers in France and Italy. Always skirting the fine line between the banal and the theatrical, Bel’s performances have both sincerity in their straightforward delivery and engagement with the audience, and a rigorously manipulated structure. His work has been shown at Tate Modern, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; The Hayward Gallery, London. His work has been included in Kunsten Festival des Arts, and Festival d’Avignon as well as dOCUMENTA 13 (2012).
