After years of exploring dance and theatre from urban, classical and contemporary angles, Victor Quijada, Artistic Director/Choreographer, formed Rubberbandance Group in 2002. Presenting choreographic works that examine human relationships, this extraordinary collection of world-class dancers articulates the perfect marriage between explosive hip-hop physicality and the subtle profoundness of contemporary story telling.
A combination of the narrative, the spectacular, and freedom of break dancing with the abstraction, nuances, and technique of contemporary dance results in a true hybrid of dance forms. Anne Plamondon joined the group in 2002 as a dancer and contributed highly to the growth and development of the company. She has been co-artistic director of RBDG since September 2005. Victor Quijada and Anne Plamondon will be the artists-in-residence at Place des Arts, Cinquième Salle in Montréal for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 seasons.
Loan Sharking is a collection of works from company’s repertory.
