Élise Vigneron and Anne Nguyen

Within a shifting and ephemeral plastic installation made of ice, a breakdancer and a puppeteer explore the question of the geometric norm and its destruction. Heat frees matter, and the body as statue becomes one with the cosmos. A world in which balance is always in play, against a backdrop of techno music.

Presentation

Within a shifting and ephemeral plastic installation made of ice, a breakdancer and a puppeteer explore the question of the geometric norm and its destruction. Heat frees matter, and the body as statue becomes one with the cosmos. A world in which balance is always in play, against a backdrop of techno music.

An autodidact, dancer and choreographer Anne Nguyen finds inspiration in science and martial arts to combine the physical and virtuosic gestures of hip hop with graphic, destructured, and refined writing.

After studying fine arts and circus, Élise Vigneron trained as a puppeteer at the École nationale supérieure des arts de la marionnette in Charleville-Mézières. She has created a language at the crossroads of fine arts, theatre, and movement.
