‘With COMPASS, we are aiming (in collaboration with Maxine Devaud) to build a strong sustainable European touring network for the projects of Snakes & Stones, where it’s possible to have important touring goals while implementing them in a sensitive, queer, and vulnerable way. We are aiming to take our time creating new projects, touring as much as possible the existing ones, defining new partners and entering into long-lasting exchanges with them, and fairly remunerating all the production, administrative, and artistic efforts leading to this work.’

‘My expectations are to keep dancing and learning while creating and sharing performances. To go places and connect, meet and learn. It might seem quite simple, but it’s not always possible when negotiating with many needs that appear while one is working in the live arts field. It involves various fronts of work in order to give the form to be shared with an audience. Receiving such support makes it possible to fulfill this wish to keep creating, and to continue to unfold this path.’

‘My expectation is to build a sustainable network for myself with a curiosity in the craft of dance and how dance helps bringing different people together.’
