Auditions – Spring 2021

Directed by Victor Quijada, RUBBERBAND is looking for new dancers and apprentice dancers for future projects.

Subject to the preventive measures imposed by the pandemic, in particular, the travel restrictions, we are looking for Montreal-based artists only. At the same time, we wish to take advantage of the present situation to build bridges and developing new artistic relationships with the local dance community, in an institutional or any other type of framework.

Profile

Candidates must have a solid base in contemporary dance and/or street dance. A reasonable command of English is a plus.

Pre-selection

Dancers who wish to apply must send the following material to the company’s production director, Véronique Perreault :

  • a recent photo portrait
  • a complete CV

The deadline to submit an application is: Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Auditions

Pre-selected candidates will be invited to a first group workshop on May 20 or 21, 2021. Following that, chosen dancers must take part in a 2-day workshop on May 22 and 23, 2021. Please ensure that you are fully available on those dates.

The company

Since 2002, Victor Quijada and RUBBERBAND have redefined break codes in an institutional context, enlivening the Quebec dance milieu and paving the way for new creators. Armed with a technique that he conceived, the RUBBERBAND Method — an electrifying dance vocabulary that blends the energy of Hip Hop, the refinement of classical ballet, and the exploratory edginess of contemporary dance — and with some forty national and international creations/collaborations behind him, Victor Quijada continues his development within a prolific career.
