In his childhood, elastic b-boy dance moves earned Los Angeles native Victor Quijada the nickname "Rubberband." Now his choreography—equally informed by his younger years in hip-hop culture and his experience in ballet and contemporary companies—stretches the limits of genre to form a hybrid "that transcends its parts and become something entirely new (Times Union)." Constantly blazing a trail of creativity, Quijada and his Montreal-based troupe of hyper-agile dancers craft innovative dance works imbued with street attitude, theatrical staging, and a delicate mix of tenderness, humor, and humanity. In celebration of RUBBERBANDance Group's 15th anniversary, Vic's Mix features multiple works highlighting the essential innovations of Victor Quijada's choreography, set to music by Prokofiev, Bach, and Jasper Gahunia, among others. Krannert Center looks forward to welcoming to the stage this company which has participated in the Immersive Development Lab artist residency program at the Center.
