Anne Nguyen has practised a variety of physical disciplines since childhood, including athletics and martial arts. Fascinated by science, she studied physics, but broke off her studies when she discovered the world of breakdance. She danced with legendary groups such as RedMask and Phase T, Def Dogz and Créteil Style in France. She has won the Battle of the Year several times, and was the breakdance world champion. As a choreographer she has been devoted since 2005 to the task of refining hip-hop and its culture and giving it back a certain mystery by combining its raw, virtuoso gestural material with pure, graphic, deconstructed choreographic expression. With her company par Terre she has created a number of productions that have been shown worldwide. She presented “Yonder Woman” at Tanz im August in 2011.
