“The formal clarity and controlled elegance of ballet [and] the raw, athletic exuberance of street dance.”* —*_Boston Globe_

Description

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.
