Give the Gift of DanceHouse

RUBBERBANDance Group (Montreal)

In their inaugural presentation with DanceHouse, powerhouse Montreal company kicks off with a roar. Choreographer Victor Quijada (former dancer with Crystal Pite’s Kidd Pivot) marshals the forces of ten extraordinary performers and live music from composer/DJ Jasper Gahunia and violinist William Lamoureux to take apart the mechanisms of compliance and control with near-surgical precision. One moment, the dancers look like inmates in an asylum, the next, street dance warriors in boiler-suited conformity. As bodies jerk and flail, dystopic contests of aggression and violence are stripped away. What emerges is a path towards genuine resistance and liberation.
