International Touring

Following Paul Tanguay’s announcement of his retirement, we would like to include some thoughts regarding our fruitful collaboration with him over the years. 

Indeed, Paul has been a principal force in the strengthening of RBDG’s presence on the international dance scene.

Victor Quijada and Paul Tanguay first met at the ISPA (International Society for the Performing Arts) showcase in New York City when Punto Ciego was being presented in 2007. Paul, who was representing Marie Chouinard and other companies on that occasion, was strongly impressed by the piece.
Victor quite naturally turned to Paul in 2010 when RUBBERBANDance Group was looking for a person who understood the importance of developing the company internationally, asking him to guide the company’s efforts in this direction.

On behalf of the whole team, Victor Quijada and Anne Plamondon warmly thank Paul Tanguay for all the energy he dedicated to RBDG over the last five years, and wish him a fulfilling retirement.

RUBBERBANDance Group welcomes Élisabeth Comtois of Agence Station Bleue, who will henceforth represent the company in Canada, and Brent Belsher, our new agent for Europe and Asia (see contact information at the bottom of the page).

Rebel bodies

982045Described by the Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City as “an invitation to discover contemporary dance as a universal language,” the exhibition Rebel bodies opened yesterday.

RUBBERBANDance Group is proud to announce that Victor Quijada is one of the eminent Quebec-based choreographer/dancers chosen to incarnate the six themes of the exposition. Using video and other technology, this immersive, interactive meeting with dance is exuberantly expressed in movement and in words by Victor Quijada (the urban body), Margie Gillis (the natural body), France Geoffroy (the atypical body), Daniel Léveillé (the political body), Louise Lecavalier (the virtuoso body), and Martine Époque and Denis Poulin (the multi-body).
