The Cultch and New Works presents Ghost

Historic Theatre, 1895 Venables StHistoric Theatre, 1895 Venables St12 Feb '20 to 15 Feb '20 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

    The Cultch, in partnership with New Works (Vancouver), is thrilled to present Ghost, from Tentacle Tribe (Montréal), at the Historic Theatre, February 12-15, 2020.

    The free-spirited Montréal choreographers of Tentacle Tribe—Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund—combine 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 gestures and movements of six of Montréal’s best street dancers. The interconnected bodies of the renowned dance troupe form striking human structures that shift, alter, and 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.

    “The title Ghost alludes to a formless state of being, but can also refer to blockages or traumas, as one faces their ghosts,” say choreographers Lê Phan and Höglund. “Dancers, and also other artists, often talk about being in the zone, connecting or catching the ghost. This state transcends verbal communication but is felt and used as a channel for creativity.”

    Tentacle Tribe was founded in 2012 when dancers and choreographers, Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund, who had worked together through the year, formalized their vision to create a company with a unique contemporary style. Seven years later, they have produced four full-length shows, including the award-winning Threesixnine, and a series of shorter works. Ghost, their exploration of breath, is their latest spectacle; combining mindboggling technical feats, and dreamlike sequences, it is a welcome breath of air.
