  • Kata, production 2017

“It could be described as a sort of b-boying performance in the style of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker. Or rather a kind of breakdance integrating the concepts of William Forsythe. Choreographer Anne Nguyen is used to these kinds of comments about her work. She understands the comparison as she is keen to deconstruct hip-hop vocabulary in order to reconstruct it, like a puzzle, to build her complex choreographies to increasing acclaim.”

Libération – Eve Beauvallet (5 May 2015)

“No-one in hip-hop has reinvented the art of the dance move in the way that she has. Anne Nguyen is to breakdance or popping what the research of Merce Cunningham or Lucinda Childs is to contemporary dance: an extremely lucid look at choreographic composition and movement, the overall effect resulting in an abstraction that overflows with musicality, dynamism and joy.”

Artistik Rezo – Thomas Hahn (5 May 2015)

“Since 2005, Anne Nguyen follows her pared down yet imperious artistic line, carving straight and sharp without deviating from her aspirations, even less from the fundamentals of her discipline. With a scientific background, she puts hip-hop movement through the mill to extract spectacular equations, uncluttered yet always surprising. A love of constraints and a passion to sublimate them: typical Nguyen.”

Le Monde Magazine – Rosita Boisseau (13 April 2012)
