The fruit of a unique meeting between classical ballet and 1990s West-Coast Hip Hop, for the past seventeen years, RUBBERBAND has been redrawing the boundaries of contemporary dance with its singular language.
Sometimes humorous, at times emotional, Vic’s Mix spans the immense creative territory of Victor Quijada, extracting a number of jewels from the choreographer’s repertoire. Remixing his own work and orchestrating the clash of urban pop and classical composition, Victor continues to experiment here, challenging notions of theatricality and audience reception, ensuring that each of the bodies moving onstage in these highly athletic tableaus exemplifies the RUBBERBAND Method.
A reflection of the freedom and openness of the ebullient Montreal dance scene, Vic's Mix is sure to astonish by its stylistic breadth.
The premiere of Vic’s Mix took place in June 2016 as part of the Festival International DansEncore in the Salle Anaïs-Allard-Rousseau of the Maison de la Culture in Trois-Rivières (Québec, Canada).
