Nach Marseille, France
Nulle part est un endroit
Energy, emotion, rhythm: in this dancing lecture, Nach narrates and shows the origin, style and expressiveness of krumping, an urban dance that originated in the early 2000s in the suburb of Watts, Los Angeles, as a form of protest by the African-American community. A powerful, intense, visceral and precise dance that incorporates violence through body language to free itself from it. Nach’s choreographic journey begins with krumping, a movement she followed for a decade, sharing its struggles and eventually approaching other aesthetics and different expressions of transcendence. Flamenco, Butō e Kathakali become part of this spontaneous creation that takes its title from a sculpture by Richard Baquié: an inscription made with pieces of metal, broken mirrors and black and white photographs of unknown alleys. An overlapping of unrelated elements guides Nach on this journey: no space is her space; her identity is not tied to a specific place but belongs to the non-identity of the world’s suburbs.
Anne-Marie Van – aka Nach – entered the dance world in 2008 through krumping. She collaborates with choreographer Heddy Maalem and director Marcel Bozonnet, with musicians Koki Nakano and Ruth Rosenthal, and the Kourtrajmé audiovisual collective. In 2017, she created her first solo, “Cellule”, followed in 2019 by “Beloved Shadows”, produced after a trip to Japan where she encountered Nō theatre, Bunraku and Butō dance. Far from predefined categories, her work claims multiple identities, interweaving various languages.
