With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

The music (or sounds) were very stressful and not pleasing to the ears at all. After one hour of that, it was time for my mom and I to go (along with a few others I noticed leaving at the same time). If the dance was done to upbeat, positive fun music, I bet it would be the rave of the town. I would never go to another Rubberband Dance if that is how the music is. Very annoying to listen to for a long period of time. My review....extremely Disappointing!
Quotes & Highlights
- “The formal clarity and controlled elegance of ballet [and] the raw, athletic exuberance of street dance.” --Boston Globe
Known on the streets of Los Angeles as Rubberband, Victor Quijada became a dancer in Twyla Tharp’s company, and then with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal where he was embraced by the Quebecois community of artists. His relatively new company is just now coming into its own on the international stage, uniting world-class dancers from ballet, contemporary and breakdance backgrounds to explore dance through an innovative mix of hip-hop dynamics and contemporary classicism. Rubberbandance’s captivating perspective on the freedom of urban dance, music and movement includes a crowd-pleasing duet set to a recording by Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland. Imagine if you can: hip-hop á La Traviata.
