Breakdance world champion Anne Nguyen has spent the past decade bringing the art of hip-hop and dance battle from the street to the stage. Throwing abstracted choreography into collision with geometry, architecture, and human experience, she celebrates hip-hop dancers’ technical and expressive prowess. A rising star in France, Nguyen makes her U.S. debut at Crossing the Line with two works. Read more about Anne Nguyen and dancer Sonia Bel Hadj Brahim HERE
