Walkwoman is a group of female artists : dancers, actors, musicians and art therapists.
The relation to the others, how to establish contact without speaking, or speaking the same language is at the heart of our research. We use dance, theatre and movement to create connexions, to improve listening and to put art in the center of the community. Creativity is used to develop relationships in space in between the participants but also the architecture and the environment.
For schools of art, we can propose workshops on more specific themes, such as :
- Performing outdoors: developping skills in adaptability and presence
- Creating site specific and interactive projects
- Scores for improvisation and composition
We teach in different kind of groups, such as schools, social workers, professional dance and theatre training programs.

Together we created pathways of movement that everyone could enjoy according to his or hers ability. Risk taking, engagement and letting go was un important part of the work.
We shared one of the company's choreographies with the group and the two cycles of workshops ended with us performing all together in Paris.
