Jérôme Bel, born in 1964 in France, lives in Paris and works worldwide. An experimental choreographer, he provokes his audiences with witty, cerebral presentations that often break down the traditional barrier between performer and audience, and that pose questions about virtuosity and the nature of dance. His performances include Pichet Klunchun and Myself (2005), Véronique Doisneau (2004), The Last Performance (1998), and, in 2001, The Show Must Go On, which brings together 20 performers, 19 pop songs and one DJ, and for which he received the Bessie (a New York Dance and Performance Award) in 2005.
