In a crisis or in the midst of extreme anxiety, where and how do we find the calm needed to confront the situation? Ever So Slightly explores behavioral mechanisms, reflexes we develop to face aggression and the constant flow of annoyances bombarding us every day. Mostly, it takes a look at change, the many elements that lead to it, and the breaking point that makes a change possible.

 

Founder Victor Quijada continues with his extraordinary dance works, this time with 10 irrepressible dancers, a DJ, and a wide-open venue. The vast performance space, the distorted bodies, and the live music result in a production on steroids. In directing a group of athletes who have mastered his RUBBERBAND Method, the choreographer combines delicacy and finesse with brute, high-voltage movement to capture the energy of urgency, revolt, and flight from danger. Until now, Quijada’s personal creations were conceived for five to seven dancers, but over the years, his choreography commissions for various institutions (Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Scottish Dance Theatre, BODYTRAFFIC, etc.) have accustomed him to work with large ensembles as well. For the first time in a work for RBDG, he’s bringing together a wild and impressive cast in order to delve deeply into human relationships and the impulses that drive and devour a group of individuals.

RBDG was founded in 2002 by Victor Quijada and immediately imposed itself in Canada and abroad as an explosive one-of-a-kind troupe. RBDG has developed a new style inspired by breakdancing, classical ballet, and dance theatre. The is dedicated to supporting the research, creation, and production of choreographer Victor Quijada, disseminating his works and ensuring the transmission and impact of his practice in Canada and internationally.
