RUBBERBAND dance founder Victor Quijada revisits his company’s 15-year history in Vic’s Mix. With a unique blend of break dancing, ballet, and modern that draws from Quijada’s broad and impressive dance career, Vic’s Mix brings street dance to the concert hall with his singular choreographic vision.
In his childhood, elastic b-boy dance moves earned Los Angeles native Victor Quijada the nickname "Rubberband." Now his choreography—equally informed by his younger years in hip-hop culture and his experience in ballet and contemporary companies—stretches the limits of genre to form a hybrid "that transcends its parts and become something entirely new (Times Union)." Constantly blazing a trail of creativity, Quijada and his Montreal-based troupe of hyper-agile dancers craft innovative dance works imbued with street attitude, theatrical staging, and a delicate mix of tenderness, humor, and humanity. In celebration of RUBBERBAND's 15th anniversary, Vic's Mix features multiple works highlighting the essential innovations of Victor Quijada's choreography, set to music by Prokofiev, Bach, and Jasper Gahunia, among others.
