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. The scientific thought as well as her practice of several martial arts inspire her to conceive choreographic universes that sublimate the hip-hop dance and its essence. By setting precise gestures, geometrical constraints, energy and density contrasts, intertwining of bodies and dance mechanisms, and unexpected occupations of space, she combines a raw, accomplished hip-hop dance with a graphic, pure, destructured choreographic writing. Her choreographic pieces display a complex, precise architecture and reflect the forms and energies that surround human beings in the contemporary world. They combine poetry and mathematics, sensuality and explosiveness.

PROMENADE OBLIGATOIRE” / Anne Nguyen yesterday evening at l’Escale de Tournefeuille

Anne Nguyen – young choreographer that we will have to follow very closely – makes this dance comparable to a corporal sculpture her own and uses it to create a piece like a study about movement and passing time. Not a grey and cold study, but a vibrant and glittering one, with an incredible precision, throughout which martial and sensual gestures resonate perfectly with haunting rhythms of splendid music composed by Benjamin Magnin.

Kata: Production 2016

Anne Nguyen seeks to continue her exploration of the transformation taking place in hip-hop aesthetics by refocusing her search on breakdancing, her preferred discipline. Kata, an ambitious piece for eight breakdancers, sets out to reflect her vision of breakdancing as a “contemporary form of martial arts, created as a means of coping with a hostile urban environment, one that transforms the body through the violence of its shapes and constraints”. Kata will be choreographed from the linear transformations taking place in breakdancing and the action-reaction principle. Currently looking for coproducers.

A new hip hop dance in couple

“In bal.exe, I have created for my eight popping specialists a new hip-hop social dance style. I have used the principles, rhythms and attitudes of some kind of social dances like tango, waltz or bachata, to confront them to the mechanical, angular and robotic gestures of popping. Thus, muscular isolations, contractions, blockings and states of body like slow-motion, waves or robotics are executed in a set of question-answer and complementarity facing a partner, in a two-grip posture. By looping the rhythmics and different principles of action and reaction, I have set up new systems of couple dance, in which each dancer moves around his partner’s body. Through this new hip-hop social dance style, a contact to the other, similar to our lifestyles and behaviours, is being developed: individualistic and egocentric, we are extremely dependent on any external occurrence and react quickly to any kind of information. We are also able to invent endless variations to the repetitive processes, which our daily life is made of.”
