Evening program

Six of Montreal’s best street dancers immerse themselves in the mysterious mechanics of breathing, and interpret its life-giving rhythm. Incandescent dance. An exhilarating blast of air.


The creative partnership between Emmanuelle Lê Phan (Canadian) and Elon Höglund (Swedish)—artists and choreographers of rare versatility, both members of the hip hop community—has yielded an imaginative and uncommon movement language. In this new work, the free-spirited pair known as Tentacle Tribe combines elements of contemporary dance, street dance and martial arts in a physical score that echoes the subtle pulse of respiration. Inhalations and exhalations sculpt the group’s gestures and movements. The interconnected bodies form striking human structures that shift, alter, evolve in synergy with the music. The invigorating power of the breath and its circulation in the organism is embodied and magnified by the energetic, almost architectural dance. From technical feats to dreamlike sequences, Ghost is a welcome breath of air.
