RUBBERBAND‘s new creation, Reckless Underdog, takes the company’s work of the past twenty years further than ever. Bigger than ever, the show features 13 dancers (currently on tour: 12 performers) who come together in a three-act choreography. Each part offers a unique proposition; three distinct universes, in terms of stage space, aesthetic choices and music.
The first, inspired by classical ballet, takes place in a circumscribed and luminous environment where the rules of pas de deux are redefined. The second, more experimental, distorts certain theatrical codes within a colored space and confronts the bodies with an abstract and minimal approach to movement. The last one deconstructs the practice of break cypher, in a dark, oppressive, but festive atmosphere.
For Victor Quijada, artistic director and choreographer, a new era is opening for the company. Reckless Underdog promises to take us on a lyrical and figurative dissection of movement, boldly exploring the limits of time and space.
Reckless Underdog is a coproduction of RUBBERBAND, Danse Danse, and Diffusion Hector-Charland, as well as a residency project supported by La danse sur les routes du Québec and Salle Pauline-Julien.
