Extension

Extension is a nod to Amala Dianor and Bboy Junior’s  first encounter on stage, celebrating the twentieth edition of the  “Festival Suresnes Cité Danses”. For this new original work, they have  created  a duo that combines their graceful feline energies, their  technical mastery and their physical exploits, transcended by mutual  generosity and fraternity. As a dialogue between two renowned artists of  the French hip hop scene, Extension shows them grow through this  artistic conversation with one another. Their physical talents, the  statements they make through their art in order to always push hip hop  further, echo each other and assemble. They lean against one another to  help each other, outdo themselves, and take flight.

Dianor, Amala

A hip hop dancer, Amala Dianor trained at the CNDC in 2000. Working as a performer in many diverse productions (from hip hop to neo-classical, contemporary and afro-contemporary dance), he quickly acquired undeniable recognition in the dancing community.

During these years, Amala perfected his writing: he masterfully went from one technique to another, but truly thrived through building bridges through these worlds. With the company C dans C, he choreographed (or co-choreographed) and performed in his first shows.

In 2012 he created “Crossroads” (winner of the Second and Third Awards at the Concours Renaissance), as well as his own company, the Amala Dianor Company, with which he developed his work as a choreographer.

The following year, he created “Parallèle”, a feminine dancing quartet at the Centre National de la Danse. In 2014, he choreographed the Extension duo alongside Bboy Junior, a surprising encounter between two esteemed performers of the French hip hop scene. That same year, he created and performed in his first solo show, Man Rec, which premiered in the Avignon festival.

In 2015, the company launched a regional project called “A Wink of Time” putting in the spotlight 18 amateur dancers on their way to becoming professionals. This project led to the creation of “Overflow”, co-signed with Mickael Le Mer, Pierre Bolo and Annabelle Loiseau. Amala also became the artist in residence at the Théâtre Louis Aragon in Tremblay-en-France, on a two-year contract.

In 2016 he created “Di(s)generation”, bringing together several generations of hip hop dancers, and showcased “New School”, a trio from “Di(s)generation” inspired by Abstract dance.

The 2016-2017 season marks Amala Dianor’s first of three years as an Associate Artist for the CDC Pôle Sud in Strasbourg, as well as for the 104 in Paris, and the Scènes de Pays dans les Mauges (Maine et Loire), France.
