Communities represent the core of the project. It is not just a matter of finding, reaching, engaging a community, it is also a matter of co – design processes and practices. Each country is involved in establishing a relationship with members of their local communities, into a training and production artistic process, in order to foreground marginalised voices and share new stories on gender, with relevance to new dance audiences.
Dancing in your shoes means that artists come into contact with the community and the community experiences the creative and artistic perspective as social approach. It is set up as an osmotic process whereby there is a mutual exchange of knowledge and suggestions that will lead communities to an understanding of gender issues. Also, a real process of co-design is achieved.
