Tentacle Tribe (Montréal) / Presented with New Works

FEB 12–15, 2020

Historic Theatre

An exhilarating breath of fresh air. Six of Montréal’s best street dancers immerse themselves in the mysterious mechanics of breathing, and interpret its life-giving rhythm. Combining elements of contemporary dance, hip hop, and martial arts in a physical score that echoes the subtle pulse of respiration, Tentacle Tribe approaches the body as a musical instrument with infinite possibilities. Inhalations and exhalations sculpt the group’s gestures, movement, and rhythm as interconnected bodies form striking human structures that shift, alter, and evolve in synergy with the music.

Redefining street dance with its unique brand of conceptual hip hop.”—The Dance Current
