Before she became an accomplished hip-hopper, Anne Nguyen had long been a martial arts devotee. Her last piece brings together these two gestural art forms in a choreography both acrobatic and stylized.
 

Eight performers for this eighth creation. In this new exploration of hip hop, Anne Nguyen left no stone unturned, always attuned to signs and meaning. The choreographer – Associate Artist at Chaillot – drew from her favorite dance, break dance, which this time around she bridges with the practice of martial arts.  Mixing these two approaches, Anne Nguyen invents a “contemporary martial art”. Her dancers fashion a new kind of battle that involves breaking down and reconstructing a powerful and highly controlled body language, turning it into a genuine war ritual.  The dance routines, inspired by the “katas” of martial arts, seem to contain hidden principles. In response to today’s oppressive world, the dancers, like the last conveyors of a code of honor that proves to be absurd, reconnect with the organic instincts of the power of bodies.
