The place of women in the urban space
Barbara’s Promise (Promesse de Barbara)
Barbara’s Promise (Promesse de Barbara) is the first part of my job. It is a play written and performed by the women of the workshop L’Urbain.e.s, directed by Damien LABRUYERE. I attended 3 rehearsals to inspire me with the atmosphere of the room but also to see the script and I made the photos during the general.
