Synecdoche

Choreographer : Emmanuelle Lê Phan & Elon Höglund | Tentacle Tribe

Synecdoche, when you speak of a part but refer to the whole thing, or vice versa. This piece is made up of sections from previous works by the Swedish-Canadian duo to pay tribute to some of their favourite choreographies in the Tentacle Tribe movement
universe. The piece showcases some of Montreal’s finest street dancers. Choreographic material from their previous works has been reworked and adapted with new costumes, new lighting, new chronology, and new choreography to bring back the thrill of a new experience.

Temps Mémoire

Choreographer : Pauline Gervais


December 1952. The great smog of London. The opacity erases all traces and markers in a world that continues to live. In this environment of smoke, two men and a woman meet to never separate again. Thusly joined, they combine their strength and courage and advance despite their blindness. With fluid and disjoined gestures, they are inexorably entangled, oscillating between distress and hope in the search for clarity and answers. An unexpected chemistry emerges from this alliance, creating an unwavering and eternal connection.

Acknowledgements : Thank you to all my partners for their involvement, enthusiasm and dedication. I am lucky to be able to work with such complete artists.
