For many years Agnès Benoit shared her life 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.
Stéphanie Pichon crosses path with Books on the Move in 2008, in Berlin, where she is an independent journalist specialised in performing art and more specifically on contemporary dance. Back in Bordeaux since 2012, she shares her time between her writings as a journalist for theaters and companies, as a cultural mediator (conferences, encounters, teaching) and her implication in Books on the Move’s project for which she’s the co-founder.
Jeanne Dantin was a volunteer at Books on the Move for a few years, she then became the secretary from 2021 to 2023. Jeanne still works closely with Books on the Move, now as a consultant, as part of Antennes, a production and artistic projet development organisation, that she cofounded with Isabelle Ellul and Amance Riquois Tilmont.
BOM booksellers : a group of about ten bookseller volunteers, all members of the non-profit organisation, roam theaters from the Bordeaux region and elsewhere in France and in Europe, with a selection of books, alone or at our sides.
Each year, we offer training sessions.
Nothing could happen without the commitment of our board:
Hélène Petitprez (president), Marie-Paule Leurs (treasurer), Jeanne Dantin (secretary).
