"We are interested in the way the new generation is adopting the codes of hip hop dance and transposing contemporary social tensions to create their own choreographic identity."

Amala Dianor

After working as a hip-hop dancer, I enrolled in 2000 at the school of the National Center for Contemporary Dance (CNDC) in Angers and then worked as a performer for choreographers of very different aesthetics: hip-hop (Farid Berki), neo-classical (Roland Petit), contemporary (Emanuel Gat, Abou Lagraa...) and Afro-contemporary (Georges Monboye). Since 2012, and after founding my own company, I have been creating my own pieces. Starting in 2014, I have been working closely with the electro-soul composer Awir Léon who has created the original music for my choreographic work.

 

Grégoire Korganow

Having worked as a documentary photographer, I decided in 2012 to dedicate myself to projects of personal interest. My series about French prison or the father-son duos are among my important photographic and film projects. My latest project, Proche, a series of photographs and recorded readings of inmates’ letters was presented as part of Avignon Festival 2021. I also created a body of work involving live performance, notably with installations at Montpellier Danse, Chaillot-TNC, and also featuring circus performers such as Johann Le Guillerm and the choreographers Amala Dianor or Ioannis Mandafounis. My work has been published and my films have been featured as part of various festivals.
