EBNFLŌH's mission

Ebnflōh Dance Company was founded in 2015 by Montreal-based choreographer, Alexandra “Spicey” Landé. All while remaining innovative, yet authentic to the genre, her main mission is to create and produce poignant works engagingly steeped in a choreographic language stemming from the world of Hip Hop

Ebnflōh (pronounced ‘ebb n’ flow’), taken from the old English idiom signifies the coming and going of the tide, and can also imply a back and forth perpetual motion. The flux and reflux of an ongoing fluidity that is never set, endlessly moves and ever flows. The company’s choreographic language is deeply and essentially rooted in the very action that ebbing and flowing represents. Firmly based upon exchanging, originality, and excellence as core values, Ebnflōh aims to highlight the rapport between the contemporary and Hip Hop dance genres, thereby creating opportunities for professional dancers here in Québec, throughout the rest of Canada, and beyond.

Complexe R: Touring Montreal.

Take in Alexandra “Spicey” Landé’s dance piece, whether for the first time, or then again, within the framework of the Conseil des arts de Montréal en tournée ! 

Complexe R was presented in the local Montreal boroughs of Saint-Laurent, NDG, and Ahuntsic-Cartierville in November and is still currently on tour. In a society where reality TV, social media, and fake news are favoured over establishing genuine human connections, Complexe R puts these same obsessions into question side by side with relationship struggles. Are we being led astray from sounder, more grounded realities? For all audiences.

In-Ward, a choreography in progress (2018-2019)

This fall, Ebnflōh had a 3-week residency at l’Arsenal art contemporain as part of the “Créateur en Mouvement” series with Danse Danse

The research residency culminated in a public performance (“Les Mardis Culturels TD”). Other residencies have been or are in the works for In-Ward thanks to our marvellous partners (chronological order): Compagnie Nyata Nyata, Agora de la danse, CCOV (a co-production: 2-week residency), Maison de la culture Villeray-St-Michel-Parc-Extension, MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels).

Cultural exchanges and community involvement: Ebnflōh's central focus.

These last months, several noteworthy events have expanded our presence within the dance community, namely:


TransFormation Danse : Last June, a two-week intensive creative workshop with Alexandra Landé took place where dancers discovered different facets thru experimentation by using improvisational and various other techniques. Photo : David Wong.

- « Focus on Dance Research » : Back in November, Concordia University held a conference bringing together a panel of 12 key figures in dance (including Alexandra), with a captive audience of more than one hundred other participants. She also taught a class with known American artist, Sabela Grimes.

Parcours Danse
: Still in November, Spicey looked back over a storied career speaking of her own personal experience during “Le Language de la Diversité” conference. Headed by MAI General Manager, Michael Toppings (Montréal, arts interculturels), the conference was presented to a group of regional presenters.
