Amala Dianor

A hip hop dancer, Amala Dianor trained at the CNDC in 2000. Working as a performer in many diverse productions (from hip hop to neo-classical, contemporary and afro-contemporary dance), he quickly acquired undeniable recognition in the dancing community.

During these years, Amala perfected his writing: he masterfully went from one technique to another, but truly thrived through building bridges through these worlds. With the company C dans C, he choreographed (or co-choreographed) and performed in his first shows.

In 2012 he created “Crossroads” (winner of the Second and Third Awards at the Concours Renaissance), as well as his own company, the Amala Dianor Company, with which he developed his work as a choreographer.

The following year, he created “Parallèle”, a feminine dancing quartet at the Centre National de la Danse. In 2014, he choreographed the Extension duo alongside Bboy Junior, a surprising encounter between two esteemed performers of the French hip hop scene. That same year, he created and performed in his first solo show, Man Rec, which premiered in the Avignon festival.

In 2015, the company launched a regional project called “A Wink of Time” putting in the spotlight 18 amateur dancers on their way to becoming professionals. This project led to the creation of “Overflow”, co-signed with Mickael Le Mer, Pierre Bolo and Annabelle Loiseau. Amala also became the artist in residence at the Théâtre Louis Aragon in Tremblay-en-France, on a two-year contract.

In 2016 he created “Di(s)generation”, bringing together several generations of hip hop dancers, and showcased “New School”, a trio from “Di(s)generation” inspired by Abstract dance.

The 2016-2017 season marks Amala Dianor’s first of three years as an Associate Artist for the CDC Pôle Sud in Strasbourg, as well as for the 104 in Paris, and the Scènes de Pays dans les Mauges (Maine et Loire), France.
