Nguyen, Anne

Dancer and choreographer of the par Terre Dance Company, Anne Nguyen is first and foremost a b-girl, specialising in hip-hop floorworks. She has performed with many hip-hop and contemporary dance companies such as Black Blanc Beur, Faustin Linyekula and Salia Nï Seydou… She formed part of the breakdance crews RedMask in Montreal, as well as Phase T, Def Dogz and Créteil Style in Paris, and has taken part in hundreds of battles, , either solo or in groups, winning several high-profile competitions, such as IBE 2004 or BOTY 2005. She has served as judge on many others, including BOTY 2006 and Redbull BC One 2007. She makes an appearance in the documentary film « Planet B-Boy » (2007).

Anne Nguyen also writes poetry, short prose items and articles on dance (« Danser magazine », « Repères, cahier de danse »). Excerpts from her collection of poems, the Manual of the City Warrior have been published in "Graff It ! magazine", on which she was chief editor of the dance section. Several pieces performed by the Company incorporate Anne Nguyen’s texts, recorded or spoken (« Square Root », « Spirit of the Underground »). Anne teaches hip-hop dance using a method based on postures, on the deconstruction of dance moves and on their subsequent deployment within the performance space. Since 2012, she has taught a technical and theoretical workshop on hip-hop dance at the University of Sciences Po Paris, called Hip-hop, a contemporary culture.

Cavallari, Claudio

He obtained his degree in Cinema at Turin University in 2003. Since 1999, he has produced a number of experimental and fiction short films, which have received awards in several festivals.

During these years, he collaborated with avant-garde theatre and dance companies in Italy as well as in France and Switzerland and, in this context, produced video installations for shows.

The production techniques of his films often vary according to the project. He thus moves from clips to documentaries and from fiction to animation.

His work is geared towards pictorial research and for roughly the last 5 years he has specialised in the creation of “living frescos”. He thus collaborated with Eve Ramboz for the creation of the images for Blanca Li’s show Le Jardin des délices. Following this, he collaborated with Les Petits Français for the creation of frescos for a number of monumental projection shows, in Mexico and in Chile, even retracing the history of Russian painting for the Moscow Festival of Lights in 2012. 

After having produced a fresco for Laurent Pelly’s staging of the opera Robert le Diable, for the Royal Opera House, London, in 2013 he collaborated in the creation of the images for Mylène Farmer’s last world tour.

He also collaborates regularly with the Centre Chorégraphique National de Créteil and its director Mourad Merzouki.

For the past 12 years he has been living and working in Paris, where he is the artistic director of Lumina, with Fabrizio Scapin.
