Tentacle Tribe is a Canadian-Swedish creative alliance between Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund. This Montreal-based dance company creates uncommon dance works with a contemporary twist using conceptual Hiphop and influences from all types of earthly creatures.
As practitioners of different dance and movement techniques, active participants in the street dance scene, b-boy and b-girl, and as stage performers, they form Tentacle Tribe.
These autodidactic creatures of infinite possibilities approach choreography through a wide variety of movement philosophies. They wish to create work that transcends the boundaries separating movement styles, and pieces that express the embodiment of music beyond technique. The work experiments with intricate partnering, refined musicality and a saturated dose of physical choreography.
