RUBBERBANDance Group is an exciting Montreal-based company exploring the fusion of contemporary ballet and hip-hop. Vic’s Mix is a remix of Artistic Director Victor Quijada’s work, orchestrating the clash between urban pop and classical composition. Describing the company’s style, The Guardian noted: “Super-stretched jumps morph into crouching rolls; top-rocking footwork muscles in on high-stepping bourrées; and below the movement's surface, silky classical phrasing is worked into the choppy rhythms of street dance. The result is a unique dynamic that's both tough and elastic.”
Pre-show discussion with choreographer Victor Quijada and Jodie Gates, Laguna Dance Festival artistic director, at 1pm.
