Since September 2021, Les Tenaces have celebrated women’s heritage, both that of the past and of the future. In the parks, courtyards, and streets of Toulouse, they have been making visible some of the invisible women who graced its streets.
These Femmages (female homages) are directed toward two artists : one deceased and forgotten, and the other alive and active.
This year, Les Tenaces take up the works and life stories of the eco-feminist Françoise D’Eaubonne and the feminist-activist Alice Coffin.
This walk is an in-situ creation which is always a unique and personal experience. The artists arrive in advance and adapt their creation to the surroundings and context. The urban furniture becomes the scenography, and they deliver a joyful mixture of dance, acting, singing, cyr wheel, corde lisse and Chinese pole. Then, they leave, sealing their performance between the audience and themselves.
The previous walks have built bridges between other life stories from: the filmmaker Raymonde Carasco, to the director Léa Fehner, and from the ringleader Jeanette Mac Donald to the animal tamer Camille Decourtye. This performance seeks above all to facilitate the (re)discovery of these emblematic women from Toulouse, and what better way to do this than for other Brussels/Toulouse-based artists to celebrate them in public space.
