Aina Allegri and Yannick Hugron
Born in 1986 in Barcelona, Aina Allegri is a choreographer, dancer and actress. After an interdisciplinary training combining dance, theater and singing in Barcelona, she joined CNDC in Angers in 2007, under the supervision of Emmanuelle Huynh.
Aina thinks of creating dances as an area of reinventing and “imagining” the body. She is interested in very different cultures and physical practices, understood as the many social and historical constructions and representations, in order to interrogate and translate them into physical experience, giving them perspective on dance. Hence it expresses different dance elements created from different mediums: stage pieces, performances, videos.
In 2009, Aina signed to the duo SPEED and in 2011 created the performance LA MAJA DESNUDA DICE, this proposal led to the creation of the piece NO SE TRATA DE UN DESNUDO MITOLOGICO in 2012. In 2015 she created the piece DELICES and in 2017 the piece DAY OF THE MONSTER.
Together with Hadrian Tourette, she has transformed some shows into “Cinematic Essays” such as the movie 12 45 84 (2010), TRIPARIA (2011) and DELICES (2014).

In 2011, he won two poll awards for his first choreography titled Crossroad and set up his company in 2012.
The choreographer is very quickly recognized in the world of dance for the uniqueness of his elegant and organic writing that is part of a formal search for movement, at the crossroads of styles. Moving from base to base masterfully (hip-hop, neoclassical, contemporary, afro-contemporary…), he strips dance techniques of their dizzying proportions to retain only the elementary movements. Thanks to this deconstruction process, it allows performers to experiment with new gestural paths. Attracted to the encounter and dialogue between beings, he unfurls a choreography that mixes forms and opens up another poetics. Since 2014, he has been working in collusion with electro-composer Auer Lyon who created original music from his shows. Sometimes he works with choreographers (Michael Le Maire, Pierre Polo, Annabelle Loiseau, Jonah Fey, Beboy Jr, Mathias Racine, etc.), musicians (Auer Leon, Koki Nakano, Helos Gillard, Steve Eaton, Eric Aldea, Evan Keuson) , writer (Denis Lachaud), calligrapher (Julian Breton), visual artists (Grégoire Corgano, Olivier Gilquin and Constance Gleeve, Clément Debras, etc.).
