Tender Loving Care

This 30-minute powerhouse work signaled the debut of Victor Quijada and his RUBBERBANDance Group on the Montreal dance scene. The quartet of dancers used aggressive physicality in a situational study of emotional and psychological dependency.

The work was classed in the “Top 5 in Dance” by Montreal daily newspaper Le Devoir, and was selected for the Printemps de la danse touring grant.

Tender Loving Care premiered in the Dança Danza new Latin dance series at Espace Tangente in May, 2002.
