Urban Ballet

Attaché à la virtuosité et à l’hybridation des  genres, Anthony Egéa signe avec Urban Ballet une danse urbaine qui «  allie techniques hip hop et finitions classiques. »

Ce  ballet urbain s’ouvre sur le solo d’un danseur, évoluant sur le Stabat  mater de Vivaldi. Le deuxième tableau réunit sur scène un corps de  ballet hip hop : neuf interprètes au sol, décomposent des mouvements  hip hop sur le Boléro de Ravel. Puis un trio entre en scène sur une  partition de Iannis Xenakis.

Le dernier tableau fait surgir un ensemble de dix danseurs, sur une composition orchestrale de Franck II Louise.

«  Les danseurs hip hop sont des curieux et des gourmands. Jamais en reste  de nouveaux apprentissages, ils ont tout testé, tout intégré depuis  vingt ans : le contemporain, la danse traditionnelle indienne, le  flamenco...

Ils s’attaquent aujourd’hui à la  danse classique, ses codes, son vocabulaire, ses pièces de répertoire.  Ils évoquaient depuis quelques années leurs points communs avec le  ballet : même goût pour l’exploit, la virtuosité. Ils passent  aujourd’hui à l’acte avec des pièces ouvertement inspirées par le  répertoire académique.

[...] Urban Ballet  d’Anthony Egéa, pièce pour dix danseurs, résulte de quinze ans de  passion pour la danse classique qu’il découvre tout jeune, au début  des année 1990, grâce à des bourses et à l’école de danse de Cannes.

Il  y a cinq ans, il concrétise son rêve : ouvrir une école dont les deux  enseignements de base sont le hip hop et le classique. Les danseurs  d’Urban Ballet sont les premiers à en sortir.“Je veux donner une  finition classique du hip hop”, explique-t-il.

Je  tente aussi d’inventer une gestuelle hybride, en combinant, par  exemple, l’aérien des classiques avec le travail dans le sol. Pour  cette danse de solitaire qu’est le hip hop, le corps de ballet est aussi  une manière de s’inventer une respiration partagée. À l’unisson,  Urban Ballet, sur le Boléro de Ravel, fait le pari de la communauté. »

Rosita Boisseau, « Quand le hip hop et ses danseurs s’entichent de la danse classique », Le Monde, 12 janvier 2008.

Égéa, Anthony

Starting in 1984, Anthony Egéa embarked upon the long learning process of hip hop dance. Having gained awareness of numerous different techniques, he perfected his training at the Ecole Supérieure Rosella Hightower in Cannes thanks to a choreography scholarship from the French Ministry of Culture. He was also awarded the Lavoisier scholarship by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and trained at the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater in New York.
His work on the subject led naturally to a streamlining of his movement and the construction of more abstract forms, confronting the virtuoso with the miniscule, the demonstrative and the expressive.
His work arose from the context of an incensed humanity and the hip hop dance rebellion.
Since 1999, his choreographies have caused his style to evolve, bringing his own vocabulary into contact with other languages. Anthony Egéa has a desire to “reveal dance from the inside, deeper down, from our skin to our feelings”. He chooses paths for transformation over the course of his pieces and projects, to call movement into question by developing hybrid forms that distance themselves from conventions and expectations. From solos to group pieces, his work changes according to the people he meets.        
Anthony Egéa places the body at the centre of his work, developing the energy and expressiveness of gestures, with creations like Tryptik (2000), Amazones (2003), and Soli (2005), where hip hop is revisited in a feminine way. In Urban Ballet (2008), the relationship between music and dance presented him with another objective: to mix urban dance with a classical score. This piece also received a Labanotation. With Clash (2009), two dancers engage in a bodily debate that challenges the notion of power, territory and borders. 
In 2010 he wrote Tetris for the Ballet de l'Opéra National de Bordeaux and Middle, in 2011, for the Beijing Dance Theater.   
In 2012, he choreographed Rage, a piece for six African dancers, offering a tracking shot of the contemporary Africa that so fascinates him. In it, he shows the vital rebellion, ardour and artistic hunger of dancers who offer, through their startling presence, a perspective of their continent.
In 2013, he embarked upon a new adventure, drawing inspiration from the world of the Wizard of Oz to develop a new piece aimed at a younger audience. This new reading of Oz led him towards new horizons where fairy tales, hip hop, gestural virtuosity and video collide.   
Keen to pursue collaborations with dancers from other places, he joined up with the project Käfïg Brasil, a piece for eleven Brazilian dancers by Mourad Merzouki, to write one of its scenes.
Since 2002, in parallel to his artistic work, he has directed the Centre de Formation Professionnelle (Professional Training Centre) for hip hop dancers from the Rêvolution company.

 

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).
