RubberBand: dance innovators
Some of the most exciting work in the world of dance happens when different styles and traditions contrast, conflict and combine to totally unique effect. This is exactly the case with RubberBand. Inspired by breakdancing, contemporary dance and ballet alike, they have been putting on electrifying performances for years, each one defying genres and tradition. The company was founded in 2002 by Victor Quijada—a former LA B-Boy who perfected his craft with Twyla Tharp and then the Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal. The group quickly established itself as one of the most exciting in Canada; Montreal newspaper Le Devoir chose two of their productions, "Tender Loving Care" and "Hasta La Próxima", for its summary of the year’s five best dance performances. The group has been celebrated by critics and spectators alike for its ability to reinterpret traditions and movements of contemporary dance forms such as street dance and hip-hop, updating for a new generation and new audiences.

Establishing new dance traditions
Since 2002, RubberBand has found huge success both domestically in Canada and around the world with their unique and experimental form of dance. In 2003, "Elastic Perspective" looked at the rebellious nature of hip-hop and toured the piece over six years, performing more than a hundred times. Having performed everywhere from the Americas to the Far East and Europe, the dance company has also been resident at esteemed cultural centres such as Montreal’s Usine C in 2004, where the group developed the award-winning piece "Slicing Static," and Place des Arts from 2007 to 2011, where they also worked with the local community and tutored up-and-coming dance talents. 2013’s show "Empirical Quotient" was arguably the most physically-demanding piece to date and saw the RubberBand method be pushed to its most extreme, resulting in a thrilling dance experience that toured widely.
