Exit Map emerged in 2004, founded by Laura Doehler, to create work collectively with other dancers. Since then, Exit Map’s work has incorporated theatre, photography and fashion, produced interventions and site specific work alongside staged performances, and introduced improvisation as a major tool of work. Exit Map is a platform that provokes collaborative processes fuelled by the concept and frames proposed for each piece. Stimulating connectivity between artists, environment and audience, their work triggers creation and action. Exit Map leaves the field of ready made performance, one man vision and objective judgment. All outcome is subjective and offers a common ground for people to meet and communicate through senses and perceptions. Everyone involved shares responsibility, integrity and authorship.

fragility of fragments
Can you see sense their weight
its suspense between gravity and
structural force to hold above ground?
you and everything else
perhaps all else is moving and you are not?
Arriving in suspended moving
being still in movement
What if what surrounds you
are the limbs or fragments
of a life form
that has you at its centre
What if every item is belonging
to your body?
whose energy you can feel
whose gravity you share
matter amongst matter
you are content to this space
adding to the flavour of this space
that all of you – from skin to core, can taste.
Amongst things, amongst weight, amongst forms.
close your eyes
still and moving
