One, from Vientiane, started at school at early age, and the other, from a rural area of Champassak province, met hip-hop in the streets of the capital Vientiane where he has installed at the age of 15 years, with part of his family.
A few years later, Noutnapha and Ounla meet in the group of young hip-hop dancers, LAO BANG FAI to participate in dance workshops and projects with several European dancers and choreographers for nearly 7 years, and they are meeting with contemporary dance and both able to follow the training and projects by choreographers Gabin Nuissier (AKTUEL FORCE Company / France), Jean-Guillaume Weis and Jill Crovisier (Luxembourg), and Olé Khamchanla (KHAM Company / France).
Since 2006, they follow the choreographic and technical training with Olé Khamchanla who regularly return to Laos. In 2008, 2010 and 2011, they are invited to France for some exchanges, cultural activities and creations of professional performances with KHAM companies (Allan) and Stylistik (Lyon). This last recent year collaboration and training encouraged both young dancers to create their own dance company in order to live with their passion, develop their practice and mount choreographic and educational projects in Laos.”
