Vanishing Points

Elon Höglund & Emmanuelle Lê Phan

Like two molecules unknowingly affecting one another in space and briefly crossing paths, conceptual hip-hop dancers collide and share fleeting moments of intimate synchronicity on the streets of Montréal. Set on the edge of a soon-to-be-demolished triangular heritage building, two individuals inhabit separate spaces, dancing alone, yet unknowingly influencing one another. The audience slowly realizes that things are not as they seem. Directed by filmmaker Marites Carino, VANISHING POINTS explores spontaneous connections in an otherwise disconnected world. It is a short dance film choreographed by hip-hop duo Tentacle Tribe (Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund) transposing concepts from breakdancing, which are usually explored alone, onto two bodies, creating an unusual acrobatic partnership.
