Anne Nguyen & Compagnie par Terre
Hip-hop has brought them to light: the underdogs, the socially disadvantaged, in whom the explosive energy of rebellion lives. The French choreographer and pioneer of hip-hop dives deep into the collective unconscious of the rebellious outsiders of our society.
Who are they, the “underdogs” who stir up the city to soul music reminiscent of the climate of the 1970s in the USA? How do their bodies shape the cityscape, how do they break norms that no longer fit? Three breakdancers embody the collective urban subconscious. They bring the social, cultural heritage to light, clash with each other and move away again. Their body language reveals the hidden experiences that connect the inhabitants of the same city. Anne Nguyen shows the “underdogs” as unique personalities.
