founded the par Terre Dance Company
in 2005. As a specialist in breakdance*
, 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 of hip-hop dance 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 an extension of her practice of martial arts, she develops choreographic principles that bring hip-hop dancers into contact within their own dance forms. 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 the combination of a technical, high-performance dance form with highly graphic, pure, destructured choreographic compositions, 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.
