Anne Nguyen 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.

Looping pop ball with audience participation
Fr. 12 and Tu. 16 June 2015 from 6.45pm to 7.30pm
Le Prisme > Elancourt (78)

“Anne Nguyen and her dancers invite you to learn looping pop, a new robotic and electrifying hip hop dance in couple! Looping pop is inspired by ballroom-style dancing, which is then confronted with the mechanical and angular gesture of popping, a specialty of hip hop dance. Muscle isolation, blocking and different body states, such as slow-motion, waves and robotics are carried out in a complementary or question/answer type format in close contact with a partner, for a playful and short-circuiting moment of exchange!”

Libération – Eve Beauvallet (5 May 2015)

“It’s a sort of b-boying performed in the style of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker. Or let’s say a kind of breakdance crossed with William Forsythe’s concepts. Today, choreographer Anne Nguyen is used to these kinds of comments about her work. She understands the comparison as she is attached to deconstructing hip-hop’s vocabulary in order to reconstruct it, like a puzzle, in choreographies which are more and more acclaimed.”
