Wo-Man

Amala Dianor réfléchit depuis longtemps à la manière de transmettre  son solo Man Rec, créé en 2014 et qui ne cesse de tourner depuis  sa création, totalisant en 2020 plus d’une centaine de représentations  dans le monde. Imprégné de toutes ses influences techniques (hip hop,  danse contemporaine et africaine…), ce solo représente le manifeste  intime du chorégraphe où se déploie la trame d’une écriture hybride  et singulière, à la fois dépouillée et complexe, abstraite et  incarnée, énergique et tranquille.
C’est sa rencontre avec Nangaline Gomis en 2018 qui lui inspire  aujourd’hui Wo-Man. Alors danseuse en formation au Conservatoire  National Supérieur de danse de Lyon, Nangaline Gomis avait sollicité  le chorégraphe pour reprendre un extrait de Man Rec dans le cadre  de ses études. Deux jours de studio ensemble et une mention très bien  à l’examen, et puis chacun a repris sa route. Mais l’idée d’une  transmission plus longue à cette jeune danseuse extraordinaire et, elle  aussi, franco-sénégalaise, infuse doucement, comme une évidence.
En 2020, Amala Dianor, plutôt qu’une reprise de son solo, imagine pour  elle un prolongement de la chorégraphie, une recréation sur le corps  d’une jeune femme. Interprète à l’énergie pulsatile, Nangaline offre  à l’auteur de se transposer dans un autre corps que le sien, pour  réinscrire, reconstruire, réinventer son histoire. Ce solo résonne  comme une extension, un prolongement de soi-même qui s’appuiera sur la  tonicité, la vitalité et la ferveur d’une jeune interprète engagée. «  Man » signifie « moi » en Wolof. Man Rec, c’était « moi seulement  ». Wo-Man sera ainsi la version féminine de ce « moi » choral, riche  d’influences diverses, de racines plurielles.

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.

He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon.
