This year a moonwalk movie will be made in order to record, heighten and share this unique experience, offering both poetic account and documentation. It will capture the dance we lived in various sceneries, daily insights, interactions, instant compositions and unexpected narratives. Catalan film director Jordi Arque did an amazing work during the whole experience.
The money will cover film editing and production costs.
Help us make it possible and be part of it!!!!!!!
The Moonwalk Project is an itinerant dance and creation laboratory in nature.
9 to15 dancers-performers-musicians, around 300 km and a moon cycle to research together on how body and landscape can meet.

The Moonwalk Project is an immersive creative process by foot in nature, a poetic journey and a dancing quest. It is an epic journey between holy and wild, from mountain torrents to the sea, from summits to the edge of deep blue horizon, going through forests and small villages.
September 2016 witnessed the first edition of the Moonwalk. 15 artists from 10 different countries and a variety of backgrounds gathered during one moon cycle to walk and explore dance together from Pyrenean Mountains to the Mediterranean Sea.
The rhythm of the walk takes us back to other times, of the first men reaching out to the unknown, of pilgrimages ever since and to journeys of the present time. An intimate dialogue is possible and revealed within the traversed environment. The desire to go forward roots in patience. It unveils our relation to the world and through dance, either subtle or explosive, we can communicate with all things.
This venture is the opportunity to question through the body, our way of perceiving, of relating to the earth, to nature, to human constructions, to the group. To extract the creating act, the transforming act. To nourish the dance through an immersive journey and invent new pathways of inhabiting the world. To dive into the unknown and the subconscious. Studying, creating and developing from the group dynamic is an important aspect of this project. As a collective, we are together for more than one month interacting and cohabiting using verbal and non verbal communication.
Our aim is to find an ecology that allows more harmonious ways between the individual and the group.
This second edition of the project has guided us through the Pyrenees but this time heading west, from Lourdes til the magic forests of Iraty following the GR10. The project started with a small preparation residency in Ariège (France) and continued with each step we left on the mud followed by the rain and the legends hidden in the forests.
The guidelines for this moonwalk were to develop and deepen the physicality and poetics of dance in resonance with landscapes, explore how we create and compose using both inner and outer elements, linking, dreaming, and emerging as dances, poems or stories.
Allowing playing a full frame game where all what we are, feel, think, do, is material for creation as well as the relationships between each other, our dreams, memories, visions, emotions.Walk into the unknown and use the way we experience it to be creative.
Find our own and collective organic rhythm.
