About

The Legible Bod(ies) is a collective of artists making dance for stage, film, screen, or anywhere people will sit still long enough to watch them.

Dancer/Choreographer Noel St. Jean-Chevalier and Photographer/Videographer Jeffrey Byrnes collaborate to create multimedia performances exploring relatable, human themes and pushing the boundaries of theater, dance, photography and film. Harnessing the unique styles of the ensemble, they produce a narrative performance rich in emotion and raw movement. The dancers’ backgrounds in ballet, modern dance, and physical theater allow for myriad combinations of style and technique, creating complexity and artistry.

The Legible Bod(ies) aim to challenge their audiences both visually and referentially.
