This video brings together all the protocols of the VIBES experiment. It allows to understand the artistic universe of each protocol and the approach of each choreographer and musicians who contributed to the project.



Vibes offers a choreographic and sound encounter experience, accessible to everyone from mobile. It allows users to come together to share a danced moment – ​​a bit like the Flash Mob, in a given place – a park for example – or in different cities or countries, at the same time.

Equipped with headphones, the participants improvise their dance together thanks to the audio-guidance of a choreographer. The application also allows them to co-create music based on their movements and their movements in space.

A Vibes session can take place simultaneously in different places to bring spaces together by synchronizing bodies

some participants.

Make dance accessible to all to bring together a diverse audience. Allow people who are physically distant or alone to connect to experience a moment of shared dance and co-created music, by abolishing borders thanks to mobile technologies. Being able to live together an ephemeral moment of bodily harmony, wherever you are, and arouse a feeling of belonging despite the distances.

Vibes offers the rare opportunity to meet, reconnect with a living and vibrant community, share emotions and energies, after a long period of constraints, for bodies and collective experiences.


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”.
