DANCECleveland & Tri-C Performing Arts Present
November 09, 2019, 7:30 pm
Founded in 2002 by Victor Quijada, RUBBERBAND is recognized worldwide for its innovation, its significant contribution in dance, and for its role in the development of a new style inspired by breakdancing, classical ballet, and dance theatre. A one-of-a-kind troupe, RUBBERBAND deconstructs the principles of urban dance and mixes style to create their own unique spin. The November performance of Vic’s Mix at Playhouse Square will mark the company’s Ohio debut and give audience members the chance to experience this highly acclaimed company’s greatest works. With both humorous and serious moments, Vic’s Mix is a kind of “best of” spanning the immense creative territory explored by Quijada, extracting jewels from the choreographer’s repertoire. Since their beginning, the company’s work quickly won over audiences and critics: in its first end-of-season review, the Montreal daily Le Devoir included the company in its pick of the five best dance productions of the year and has since gone on to perform all over the world to rave reviews.

“Quijada’s choreography blurs hard edges of breaking with contemporary sensibility, boasting delectably clever partnering and buoyant musicality”- Time Out Chicago
“A marvel of speed, precision, and invention, Victor Quijada is riveting as a performer. […] . As artistic director/choreographer of Montreal’s RUBBERBANDance Group, he mixes hip hop with contemporary and classical dance in a speedy, über-physical hybrid that blends easy elegance with male-female confrontations that threaten to become pileups. When he’s finished, the audience is whooping” - Dance Magazine
