≡ Press review from Rosita Boisseau about bal.exe in M le magazine du Monde
“In couples, the eight dancers are standing face to face and enchain dislocated movements. Their bodies, shaken by spasms, explode like popcorn, expressing a strange nervousness. They touch each other, separate. “As in a duel, explains Anne Nguyen. It’s a social dance, hindered by the use of different styles of hip-hop dance, as popping, based on muscle contraction and robotic, which mime gestures of robots.”"

≡ Last residency before the premieres of bal.exe
This week, the par Terre Dance Company will be in residency at the CCN de Caen, where the artistic team will start working with the musicians from the Regional Orchestra of Basse-Normandie. Premieres at the CCN de Caen on 20th and 21st march during the Spring Festival.
≡ Coming soon : premieres of bal.exe !
For her seventh creation, Anne Nguyen restages eight popping specialists. She composes for them a "mechanical" ball accompanied by chamber music, Brahms's quintet for clarinet and strings (opus 115) and three music pieces by Bach, Biber and Connesson played on stage by five classical musicians. Brahms's quintet, the main music piece around which the choreographer has conceived the show, is well-known for its particularly melancholic tone. As a counterpoint to the lyricism that could be inspired by the music, the bodies of the dancers are impregnated by the weight of accumulated constraints and it is through jerky, restrained and mechanical gestures that they become submerged by the music.
