Nulle part est un endroit

In a danced lecture that takes its title  from Richard Baquié’s sculpture, the choreographer presents the multiple  roots and shifting geographies of her artistic practice, and weaves  them together.

After a decade-long immersion in the krump movement and its battles,  the artist chose to espouse new aesthetic realms such as flamenco, butoh  and kathakali.

She develops the art of storytelling with the  body, combined with here recent theatrical experiences, to question the  construction of a performative artistic identity, at the intersection of  performing arts and image projection.

Nach

Anne-Marie Vann (alias Nach) came across Krump dance by chance at the age of 22, at the Opéra de Lyon, having seen some of the first images of it in the documentary film Rize by David Lachapelle. The street was her first school: here she found a community which gave her her knowledge and the foundations for this urban, Gospel dance.

Nach’s dance was forged through her encounters.  Her meeting with the choreographer Heddy Maalem in 2012 was critical in forming her desire to develop Krump with the influence of other practices.  Equally significant was her encounter with the dancer Bintou Dembélé, with whom she shared the scene /T/R/A/T/E/S quartet.

Her encounters with traditional arts, like Kathakali (she trained in this at ARTA), are significant. Another example is flamenco, whose duende evokes for her the glee of of the Krump beats.

Her curiosity allows her to draw reference from the crossover point of different arts: photography (Antoine d’Agata, Francesca Woodman, etc.), poetry (Sony Labou Tansi etc.), audiovisual arts, and experimental film and music.

Nach begun to put her dance into theatrical settings. Marcel Bozonnet called on her to work on La neuvième nuit, nous passerons la frontière, created in November 2016.  She created her first solo Cellule in 2017 and continued with a focus on contemporary dance in Columbia, creating the duet -Et toi? with the choreographer Angela Bello.

Nach was a resident artist at the Kujoyama Villa between July and December 2018, and will hold her 2018 position as artistic fellow at the CCN de la Rochelle until 2020.  Additionally, she is supported by the Atelier de Paris/CDCN as part of  “Fonds FoRTE”.
