I work with ADT as a client and often wonder how choreography can be translated into understanding movement in urban environments? In ADT's work they use global research to inform movement. Could this process be inverted? How might the movement of women's bodies inform research? Are there precedents for innovators and choreographers working together towards social solutions?

Women coming together to perform an art, not only creates a strong relationship between them, but also makes some space for them to open up and discuss their problems. That's a great way to start and build a strong women force.
