Punto Ciego is inspired by the nonlinear approaches of Milan Kundera and Quentin Tarantino. Composed of situations in which several personalities come together in a collective reality, this tragicomedy makes use of the audience’s subjectivity to give density to the negociations taking place on stage. Expanding on his experiments with spoken word, video projection, and interaction with the public, Quijada offers a unique choreographic experience, delivered by six talented dancers.

The premiere of Punto Ciego took place in October 2008 at the Redfern Arts Center of Keene State College, in New Hampshire.

Coproduced by RUBBERBAND, Société de la Place des Arts de Montréal, the National Arts Centre, and the New England Foundation for the Arts/National Dance Project. With the participation of Centennial Theatre of Bishop’s University, and Salle Pauline-Julien. With the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Conseil des arts de Montréal, and the Canada Council for the Arts.
