A sensitive self-portrait of a unique artist experiencing raw emotions, aspirations and desires through krump.

I am a warrior. I take risks.

In this work of rare intensity, Nach invites us to explore the light and shadows that flow and weave through us all, bursting through the barriers that confine us. Nach presents her personal version of Krump, a coded and hierarchical dance created in Los Angeles in the 2000’s following racial riots. It is liberated from the past but remains faithful to its roots. Like all Krumpers, she is both herself and her own avatar. In her solo Cellule she escapes her imprisonment, evoking not only the films of David Lynch but the autobiographical works of photographers like Francesca Woodman, Nan Goldin and Antoine d’Agata.

Don’t miss Nach’s workshop on the day before!


Anne-Marie Vann (alias Nach) came across Krump dance by chance at the age of 22, at the Opéra de Lyon, having seen some of the first images of it in the documentary film Rize by David Lachapelle. The street was her first school: here she found a community which gave her her knowledge and the foundations for this urban Gospel dance. Nach’s dance was forged through her encounters with traditional arts, like kathakali (she trained in this at ARTA), butoh and flamenco. She created her first solo Cellule in 2017, followed by Beloved Shadows 2019, Elles disent 2022 and video installation Scène pour récit nu 2023.
