IN-WARD / ALEXANDRA SPICEY LANDÉ - EBNFLOH
Shifting between the temptation of being alone and the threat of real conflict, six dancers incarnate the deep ambivalence of human relations. In-Ward plunges into the twists and turns of the human psyche, both personal and collective. The choreography of Alexandra ‘Spicey’ Landé brilliantly evokes alienation and the strength of the group in solos that reveal individuals bristling with hopes and contradictions. The choreographer turns this sombre premise into a radiant work. A pioneer on the Montreal hip hop scene, ‘Spicey’ adroitly imposes with a piece that was awarded the 2019 Prix de la danse de Montréal – Discovery category.
