The Ebnflōh Dance Company, founded in 2015 by Alexandra ‘Spicey’ Landé, offers a unique choreographic language and artistic vision. She promotes creative exploration by broadening the field of research for street dance in Canada while remaining true and faithful to the base of Hip-Hop’s origins. Her artistic signature, her community involvement, and her contribution to the growth and development of dancers and the discipline itself, make the company an acclaimed actor in the dance milieu in Quebec. Inclusive at the core, it equally values the practices of emerging talent along with those of the culturally diverse. The company hopes to make street dance more accessible - its diversified public is a testament to the company’s success.
THE SHOW « IN-WARD »
With raw and sharp physicality, Alexandra subtly combines dramatic tension, and dark humour in dealing with obvious situational absurdities that grapple with the forces of hope. Are we able to perceive and understand the other’s experience without the biases of our own subjective experience? Forced to live together in a limited space, forming perhaps unlikely alliances, these individuals and their bodies must reconcile temptations to be alone with a threat of real conflict.
