Tentacle Tribe

Monday, January 24, 2022 at 7:30 pm

Approaching choreography through a wide variety of movement philosophies, Montreal-based dance duo Tentacle Tribe concocts uncommon dance works with a contemporary approach. Drawing from their wide scope of dance experience, co–founders Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund create conceptual hip–hop with a contemporary twist, while intermingling organic influences from earthly creatures.

In their new work, Ghost, the free-spirited pair 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. More at tentacletribe.com.

Opening for Tentacle Tribe will be an ensemble of dancers from Towson University and The Community College of Baltimore County performing Excerpts from Voila Voila, a program exploring vignettes of love, community, and the intergenerational relationships and rich traditions of family, choreographed by Robert J. Priore of Company E.


This engagement of Tentacle Tribe is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.  Additional funding is provided by the Baltimore County Commission on Arts and Sciences on behalf of the Citizens of Baltimore County.
