RUBBERBAND: Ever So Slightly
May 4 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Founded in 2002 by Victor Quijada, RUBBERBAND immediately imposed itself in Canada and abroad as an explosive one-of-a-kind dance troupe. In their very first year of activity, RUBBERBAND brought well-honed forms that deconstructed several principles of urban dance to the stage.
In Victor Quijada’s Ever So Slightly, 10 dancer-athletes in top form explore the behavioral mechanisms and reflexes we develop against the ceaseless flow of irritants that bombard us in our daily lives. Most of us long for calm and resilience, but how do we get to a zone where noise and aggressivity no longer have a place? Simultaneously delivering delicacy, brutality, finesse and high-voltage action, the choreographer conveys all the energy contained in urgency, revolt, chaos and flight.
