Tentacle Tribe, whose performance language oscillates among street styles, martial arts and contemporary dance, will blow you away! These amazing artists enjoy blurring the boundaries between the real and the dreamlike. Welcome to what you think you see.

With talent to spare and an abundance of imagination, the Canadian–Swedish creative duo of Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund deploy their tentacles in luminous spheres. They deepen their exploration of perception, illusion and the invisible, searching for what we cannot really grasp, what is hidden from words and the gaze. A quintet of dancers move between a reflective floor and movable mirror panels that they can manipulate from different angles. Kaleidoscopically multiplied tenfold, their bodies seamlessly unite and intermingle, in synergy with Höglund’s music. Prism opens up a myriad of possibilities, distorting perspec, tives and deconstructing movement into infinite combinations of colourful images. A dreamlike journey with a truly hypnotic effect.

- Post-performance talk with the artists Wednesday, March 22 and Friday, March 24, 2023.
