Anne-Marie Van - NachCellule

Play video

Using the language of Krump, Nach, the avatar of dancer and choreographer Anne-Marie Van gives birth to the multiple characters bubbling under her skin. In a solo of rare intensity, Nach invites you to enter her cell and to witness the kaleidoscopic metamorphosis of her androgynous body.

Cellule offers a personal and liberated vision of Krump, a dance style born in the early 2000s after the race riots in Los Angeles.

Anne-Marie Van is Nach, a dancer and choreographer who developed a strong interest in the krump dance style after watching David LaChapelle’s movie « Rize » and watching dance performances in front of the Opera of Lyon in 2005. From urban rituals on the roofs of the Porte de Montreuil to « Éloge du puissant Royaume » by the contemporary choreographer Heddy Maalem, Nach explores the territory of her inner lights and shades and plays with the ambiguity of her androgynous body, with two beings conversing within a same body. Like all krump dancers, Nach is herself and her avatar. Nach is presenting a personal version of Krump, liberated from the past but loyal to the movement and its creators. Cellule is her first solo.
