    GHOST

    FEB. 26-27, 8 p.m.
    Dance Theater,
    Marietta Campus

    This new work from Canada’s Tentacle Tribe combines elements of contemporary dance, street dance and the martial arts in
    a physical score that echoes the subtle pulse of respiration. The invigorating power of the breath and its circulation in the organism is embodied and magnified by this energetic, almost architectural dance. From technical feats to dreamlike sequences, Ghost is a welcome breath of air. The performance will be preceded by a lecture that will set the stage for the work of Tentacle Tribe in light of contemporary issues relating to Black culture and Black dance in America.

    Choreographers:
    Emmanuelle Lê Phan
    and Elon Höglund
