Victor Quijada, artistic co-director of RUBBERBANDance Group, has been invited to choreograph one of the three segments of the new creation by circus company Les 7 doigts de la main; Marie Chouinard and Marcos Morau are the other invited choreographers. Triptyque, an exploration on the theme of gravity, will be presented from October 14 – 25, 2015, at the TOHU. You’ll also be able to see our artistic co-director, Anne Plamondon, and RBDG dancer Franklin Luy in this production. Triptyque is a coproduction between Les 7 doigts de la main, under an invitation of Daniel Soulières, and Sadler’s Wells (London), Thomas Lightburn (Vancouver), TOHU (Montréal), Albourne (Norwalk) and Danse-Cité (Montréal).
Los Angeles dance company BODYTRAFFIC, with whom Victor Quijada collaborated in 2014 in the creation of Once again, before you go, will tour the United States and Europe throughout the season to present this unique new work. Visit their website for performance dates.

Anne Plamondon will give two series of workshops centred on the RUBBERBAND Method, in Quebec City and in Sherbrooke. The workshops explore the basics of this method developed by Victor Quijada, and are inspired by RUBBERBANDance Group internships intended to prepare dancers for the demands of Victor Quijada’s choreographies. Organized by the Regroupement québécois de la danse (RQD), this training program is offered to dance professionals for the low fee of $7 per class. The workshop will run from November 30 to December 11 in Quebec City and from February 17 – 25 in Sherbrooke.

Several current or former RBDG dancers will perform in Montreal dance productions this season. Among others, Jean Bui can be seen at Agora de la danse in Situations by George Stamos. At Tangente, Paco Ziel will be on stage in Danses Buissonnières, and Axelle Munezero and Handy Yacinthe will present their respective choreographies, Phase 1 and Myocarditis, in a double program.
