Noémie is a contemporary dancer and performer. She is passionate about choreography, rhythm, musicality and thrilling a heterogeneous audience. She interprets the dance and theatricality that movement can provide. By moving back and forth between different qualities of movement, situations and interactions on stage, she engages the public into a world of possibilities and self-questioning.
