2019 FESTIVAL – RUBBERBAND
RUBBERBAND is an exciting Montreal-based company exploring the fusion of contemporary ballet and hip-hop. “Vic’s Mix” is a remix of Victor Quijada’s work, orchestrating the clash between hip-hop and classical composition. Quijada defies notions of theatricality and audience expectations. Describing the company’s style, The Guardian noted, “Super-stretched jumps morph into crouching rolls; top-rocking footwork muscles in on high stepping bourrées; and below the movement’s surface, silky classical phrasing is worked into the choppy rhythms of street dance. The result is a unique dynamic that’s both tough and elastic…true to their name, the group’s performers move together as if connected like a rubber band.”
