Performance

RUBBERBAND

Ever So Slightly

In their inaugural presentation with DanceHouse, powerhouse Canadian company RUBBERBAND kicks off with a roar. Choreographer Victor Quijada marshals the forces of ten extraordinary performers and live music from composer/DJ Jasper Gahunia and violinist William Lamoureux to take apart the mechanisms of compliance and control with near-surgical precision. One moment, the dancers look like inmates in an asylum, the next, street dance warriors in boiler-suited conformity.

As bodies jerk and flail, dystopic contests of aggression and violence are stripped away. What emerges is a path towards genuine resistance and liberation.

Speaking of Dance Pre-Show Talk 7:15pm each night in the Vancouver Playhouse Upper Lobby. Host: Pia Lo (Dance Journalist and Blogger, Globe Dancer). Guest: Victor Quijada (Artistic Director and Choreographer, RUBBERBAND)
