Agnès Benoit shared her life for many years between France, England, the United-States and Germany. Whether it be during her studies, teaching or presence on stage, sharing and reflecting around the moving body have always been her anchor point, playground… From her long practice of improvisation arises a series of interviews (On the Edge/Créateurs de l’Imprévu, Contredanse, 1997), as well as a multidisciplinary and experimental approach to language learning through movement.
She founded Books on the Move in 2008 in Berlin, born of the desire to create a nomadic bookshop specializing in contemporary dance, performance and somatic practices, so that dancers could have access to a literature that is too little visible.
Since 2013, the adventure has continued from southwest France, accompanied by Stéphanie Pichon, a freelance journalist specializing in the cultural field. Together, they develop workshops, conferences and interventions all around books, movement, writing and languages.
