A Belgian of Australian descent, Joanne Leighton has been living in France since 2010. She headed the CCN of Franche-Comté in Belfort and, in 2015, set up her WLDN company in Paris. With Songlines, she continues her exploration of the march started with the shows 9000 steps and Walk.

What world are we creating, to the extent of our steps? A piece for eight dancers, created on Terry Riley's fascinating musical composition, In C, Songlines captures the founding movement of walking. Along the way, man reads the world and multiplies perceptions. The march composes, the written step, the march invents an indissoluble link with the environment. Among Australian aborigines, songlines are the paths that crisscross the earth. They were inscribed in the landscape by ancient legendary totemic beings, creating paths preserved to this day by song and dance. What contemporary totems stand in resonance today? In close relation to the musical score, Joanne Leighton works gestures and spaces, to reveal the songlines of the dance floor.
