Victor Quijada is back, with ten dancer-athletes in top form. Ever So Slightly explores the behavioural mechanisms and reflexes we develop against the ceaseless flow of irritants that bombard us in our daily lives. Most of us long for calm and resilience, but how do we get to a zone where noise and aggressivity no longer have a place? Simultaneously delivering delicacy, brutality, finesse, and high-voltage action, the choreographer conveys all the energy contained in urgency, revolt, chaos, and flight.

The premiere of Ever So Slightly took place in December 2018 at Théâtre Maisonneuve of Place des Arts, in Montreal.

Ever So Slightly is a co-production of RUBBERBAND, Danse Danse, Société de la Place des Arts de Montréal, Théâtre Hector-Charland and World Music/CRASHarts. With the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the Ontario Arts Council.

RUBBERBAND benefited from the support of Danse à la Carte and residencies at Place des Arts, Salle Pauline-Julien, CCOV – Centre de création O Vertigo and Théâtre Hector-Charland for the creation of Ever So Slightly.
