Exit Map emerged in 2004 and was founded by Laura Doehler to create dance collectively with other dancers. Since then, Exit Map’s work has incorporated theatre, photography, fashion, produced interventions and site specific work alongside staged performances, and introduced improvisation as a major tool of work that defines creative, collaborative and cross-disciplinary processes.
In 2012 Tania Soubry and Anne- Gaelle Thiriot became close associates and collaborators who became co-directors of Exit Map in 2021. Together they developed a vision of cultural, social and environmental regeneration to manifest stronger and deeper connections with people and our environment. Exit Map is a social enterprise that engages the local community and reaches out to the world community of people for movement to make a change towards a sustainable future.
Stimulating connectivity between artists, environment and people, our work is an extension of ourselves, from body into space via actions, connections and movement as our basic tools. Our intention as individual artists is to bring in what is unique to us. Exit Map leaves the field of ready-made performance and one (wo)man vision and enters an arena of common ground where communication and meetings are leveled with what we produce and who we are. Being physically present together during processes and events we install an embodiment and presence that informs the way we meet and what we exchange.
