DanceWorks' Presents RUBBERBANDance Group

DanceWorks, Toronto’s leading presenter of Canada’s independent dance artists, opens its 2018-2019 season with RUBBERBANDance Group’s Ever So Slightly choreographed by Artistic Director, Victor Quijada.


Ever So Slightly is a quest for tranquility within chaos…but at what cost? In a crisis, in the midst of extreme anxiety, where and how do we find the calm needed to confront the situation? Victor Quijada delves into new territory as he explores change – the many elements that lead to it and the breaking point – with 10 dancers at the top of their form (Amara Barner, Jean Bui, Daniela Jezerinac, Sydney McManus, Dana Pajarillaga, Brontë Poiré-Prest, Jerimy Rivera, Zack Tang, Ryan Taylor and Paco Ziel), a DJ, and live music composed and performed by multi-instrumentalist Jasper Gahunia and violinist William Lamoureaux. The result is a production filled with delicacy, finesse, and high-voltage movement that captures the energy of urgency, revolt, and flight from danger. 


The show runs for two nights only – Thursday, October 11 and Friday, October 12 – at Harbourfront Centre’s Fleck Dance Theatre preceding its Montreal premiere.Tickets available at the Box Office by phone at 416-973-4000 or online.

In a crisis, in the midst of extreme anxiety, where and how do we find the calm needed to confront the situation? Ever So Slightly explores change through ten irrepressible dancers, a DJ and a wide open venue. The vast performance space, distorted bodies and live music result in a production on steroids directed by a choreographer whose mastery combines delicacy and finesse with high-voltage movement to capture the energy of urgency, revolt and flight from danger.
