Rodney Strong Dance Series: RUBBERBAND

Founded in Montreal in 2002 by Artistic Director Victor Quijada, RUBBERBAND has redefined the codes of break, classical ballet, and dance theatre. Through his company and the RUBBERBAND Method, Quijada has invigorated the Quebec choreographic milieu and paved the way for new creators. With over forty creations and collaborations in Canada and around the world, Quijada continues to develop in the midst of a prolific career. He currently is working on a new creation, Second Chances, inviting himself and the audience to delve deeply inside themselves, reflecting on origin, belonging and, displacement between universal questions and intimate, personal thoughts.

Born to Mexican parents and raised in Los Angeles, Victor Quijada was first trained in the b-boying circles and hip-hop clubs of his hometown. He joined Rudy Perez in 1994, moved to Tharp! in New York in 1996, and worked with Les Ballets Tech in 1999 before arriving in Montreal in 2000, where he joined Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. He founded RUBBERBAND in 2002, as he immersed himself in deconstructing the choreographic principles he had learned by combining them with the raw ideology of urban dance. His creations are imbued with a strong theatricality, the energy of improvisation and the codes of cinematic language. They are sculpted by an incomparable precision of gesture.
