Retrospek

EBNFLŌH Dance Company

The passionate relationship between Alexandra “Spicey” Landé and hip- hop dance goes back a long way. After attending workshops with street dance’s biggest names, she decides to dedicate herself to choreography. Spicey, who has been teaching dance for over 20 years, was inspired by her love for hip-hop when creating Retrospek.

In this this first piece, she challenges the rules and codes of Hip-hop while pushing boundaries beyond measure. Supported by a cast of nine impressive dancers, she invites her public to experience a unique show where movement and emotions are one. Retrospek evokes feelings of love, passion, despair and death while conveying, through music, an electrifying energy.
