Montréal, March 13 2018 — 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 pro- duction on steroids.
RUBBERBANDance Group’s Ever So Slightly, will premiere at Théâtre Maisonneuve December 5 – 8, 2018. Renewing its collaboration with Danse Danse, the company has been offered the series’ largest venue. For the occasion, Victor is surrounding himself with a revamped team. Invigorated by new collaborators from various artistic backgrounds, the presence of musicians on stage, and an array of irrepressible of dancers, RUBBERBANDance Group is shifting into overdrive!
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.
