With the world in upheaval, we constantly struggle to avoid succumbing to the external forces that oppress us, and to the even darker forces within us. Victor Quijada is back: this time, on a huge stage stage with 10 dancers at the top of their form: a vast performance space for a production on steroids.
Ever So Slightly explores behavioural mechanisms – the reflexes we develop to face the ceaseless flow of irritants bombarding us every day. Most of us harbour a desire for calm and resilience, but how do we get to a zone where noise and aggression no longer have a place? Capable of delivering delicacy, finesse, brutality, and high-voltage action, in this work, the choreographer deploys his RUBBERBAND Method – mastered by an unconventional group – to capture the energy of urgency, revolt, and flight from danger.
Victor Quijada delves into new territory, surprising us yet again.
