French-Senegalese artist, a rising figure of today's dance, Amala Dianor claims a virtuoso and mixed dance.

Abstract

For Wo-Man, the choreographer takes his inspiration from Man Rec, an intimate solo that laid the foundations of his hybrid style – a mixture of African dance, hip-hop and contemporary. He transposes it here into the body of Nangaline Gomis, a young Franco-Senegalese dancer of pulsating energy. At once transmission and recreation, Wo-Man embodied the feminine side of an artist of multiple influences and roots. In Point Zéro, his new piece, he reconnects with Johanna Faye and Mathias Rassin, two renowned dancers from a street-dance background who are also friends. The trio probe their respective pathways and aesthetics to see what has become of hip-hip’s founding values. Their dance, set to Awir Leon’s electro-soul music, is a captivating dialogue. Shot through with Johanna’s extreme physicality, the magical flow of Mathias and Amala’s melting-pot poetry, it reveals three tremendous performers who have crafted a free-spirited, generous and sophisticated piece of work.
