founded the par Terre Dance Company
in 2005. As a specialist in breakdancing*
in the world of hip hop battles*
, a dancer in many hip hop and contemporary dance companies, and a writer of poetry and prose items about dance, she created the par Terre Dance Company to highlight the principles and energies hip-hop in shows with universal symbolics. Influenced by her scientific background, Anne deconstructs the various hip hop moves and opens up new areas of expression by setting geometrical constraints. In continuity with her practice of martial arts, she develops choreographic principles by putting in contact hip hop dancers in their own gestures. Her choreographic pieces display a complex, precise architecture and alternate between controlled spaces prompting personal interpretations and spaces left to chance, or calling for improvisation, which can be fraught with risks. Based on a combination of technical, high-performance dance routines with a highly graphic, pure, destructured feel, Anne's productions convey a feeling of abstraction and challenge the place of the human being in the contemporary world. Anne Nguyen has been awarded the 2013 Nouveau Talent Chorégraphie SACD prize.
