Company Presentation

Drawing from their wide scope of dance experience, co-founders Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund create conceptual hip-hop with a contemporary twist, while intermingling organic influences from earthly creatures. This Canadian-Swedish creative alliance experiments with intricate partnering, refined musicality and a saturated dose of physical choreography. Active participants in the street dance scene as B-boy and B-girl, and as seasoned stage performers, the two combine movement techniques that transcend style boundaries and create works that express the embodiment of music beyond technique.Their repertoire includes magnetic duets & trios such as Body to Body, When They Fall, Nobody Likes a Pixelated Squid, Origami Mami, Threesixnine and Fractals of You, which have toured internationally.
