In 2016 and 2018 she worked with Nancy Stark-Smith on GLIMPSE, a research and performance project of the Underscore in the USA. She is a certified choreologist (specialist of Laban-based contemporary theory and practice) and has been a guest lecturer for Trinity Laban, Roehampton and Winchester University. A dancer, teacher, facilitator and choreographer, she presently works with Andrew Graham (L’Autre Maison), Mathilde Monfreux, Compagnie Libertivore and Eric Minh Cuong Castaing, and also organises the project Le FIL: Training & Open Studio in Marseille, with fellow dancer Julien Dégremont.

  • Open Day | Exit Map

    Open Day For a whole day The Green shared what it offers – classes, meet ups, support schemes, drop ins, tea and coffee – for its local community to get a taste and to integrate development that comes directly from the community and is for the community. Exit Map's facilitation focussed on the wishes and dreams of lour local community and worked on producing an environment that connected and listened to what is going on in people’s lives. ​ As a community centre The Green wants to create social well being and so we ask you How are we well together? The program of tasters showed what is on offer on a regular basis but throughout the day there were conversations, games, food and interview stations, map making etc to find out who is who and for all to remember that people are worth meeting and that strangers can be become friends. ​ The entire event was free, grown from people who care: The Green, Exit Map, its teaching community and the community itself who provided food and helped out; people who care and want to connect.

  • Openly spaced out | Exit Map

    We opened a WhatsApp group Openly Spaced Out for people to join us moving outdoors in more natural environments because we started to perceive and feel how natural spaces give something to the body, to movement, the way we feel and the way we understand nature. That we fell in love with. This group continues to be a meet up and if you want to join just email your name and phone number (ref Openly Spaced Out) to . It is largely SE London based but not only. ​ It is a format where actions or 'undoing' derive from listening to what it is we need or want at this given time in this given space. We soften the edges of what we think we need to do, adjusting our methods and exercises to what feels right and where our curiosity leads us. That may be exercises but it might also be lying in the grass, throwing back a ball to a child, cartwheeling or perceiving tiny shifts of weight on an uneven grassy ground. ​ In not being alone we give permission to do things in our own quirky and untested ways. People that pass by are positively intrigued or don't care much; either way you haven't got much to loose. ​ We also offer audio guides that you can bring to the park via your phone or an audio device and headphones. These were created by dance artists who work somatically and can fine tune our connectivity to ourselves and to nature, through spoken word guidance. These are available via our archive of Moving On which is the umbrella under which these were created. Have a little roam and under the timeline link and you will find much to explore. There are even more audios via our Spotify link which do have a subscription fee attached but you can subscribe for one month only if you like to enjoy a wider range of audios and a wider range of artists who conceived them. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​​​

  • Walk and Talk and Cake | Exit Map

    Archive Walk and Talk and Cake August 2022 Our community event that we co-organised with the Green community centre began with a walk through Nunhead cemetery which is a local gem and a perfect way to get to know new people or catch up with old friends. Afterwards we went to the Green, ate a huge amount of cake and exchanged some clothes based on contributions that everyone brought along. During that day we took time to enjoy each others company and simply take time to connect. The sun was on our side and all donations went to the Green.

Moving On Sensing Skin Mountsfield Park, London 03 & 10 July 2022Meanwodd Valley Urban City Farm, Leeds ​ Artists: Alice Labant, Vanessa Grasse, Vanio Papadelli and Evert Taihuttu ​ Moving On Sensing Skin is an immersive experience that allows you to connect to nature via movement as they facilitate intricate tunings via our skin receptors, images and embodied connections. Together they open up pathways, that like windows, allow the light to filter through and gently mobilise you; inspiring summery dances and a deeply felt sense of togetherness. Moving On Rsonance creates a landscape of words and sounds that accompanies you as you wander, rest and experience how your body and relationship to the world changes by a deepened sense of presence to the space. It is a collective and communal event as we find ourselves sharing this experience. The sound magical rests in the canopy of trees and gently rises from the ground. Artists: Simon Roth, Sara Ruddock, Tania Soubry and Amy Voris A secluded area of woodland in South London set on the broad slopes of a deep railway cutting offers an immersive ambience of sounds and words to reconnect to nature for a renewed sense of navigating life through our senses and environment. In collaboration with the London Wildlife Trust. Artist: Laura Doehler, Anne-Gaelle Thiriot and Marina Collard Past headphone events This trailer we made with people from our community when we were still working with headphones. Giving voice and visibility to each experience it shows how the feeling of connection of body to land and how movement created a new alternative and way forward. "Moving On is a dance meet-up in the park. You are accompanied by professional dancers guiding you through a movement score. Rather than being the usual jumpy and poppy workout, Moving On is a meditative, introspective and vulnerable process. Wether you are deep into contemporary dance or not, it will be a novel experience of discoveries." ​ Florent Venet, participant of many Moving On projects during lockdown Since September 2020 we installed a regular outdoor movement practice with Moving On for dancers and non dancers alike. These are our past projects ​ ​ Moving On Remembering is a spacious audio by Laura Doehler that invites you to connect to body and space as a reminder of the very basics that we need to look after and connect to. It is an audio that acknowledges the transient nature, how all will go and new things come, where presence, the here and now, shouldn't be forgotten but celebrated.
