Tentacle Tribe + The Woods

Thursday December 10, 2015 – Saturday December 12, 2015

Sharing a desire to dissolve boundaries between different dance forms, Canada’s Emmanuel Lê Phan and Sweden’s Elon Höglund joined forces to create works that smoothly meld hip-hop and contemporary dance. The results? Wonderfully intricate partnering, finely honed musicality, and richly dense physicality that takes viewers on a thrilling ride to the very edge of new dance. Sharing the bill are local favourites, The Woods + Ghettosocks, who are creating a brand new work incorporating dance, music, and spoken word. A not-to-be-missed evening of rhythm and beats!

“Full of very physical hip-hop virtuosity and pure, youthful energy.” – The Dance Current
