RUBBERBANDance!

Live Art Dance Productions presents the Halifax premiere of Gravity of Centre by RUBBERBANDance, one of Canada’s most groundbreaking dance groups. Fusing hip hop with the refinement of classical dance, choreographer Victor Quijada presents a ferocious choreography that will make this Holiday Season anything but dull!

Gravity of Centre is the eighth creation of RUBBERBANDance created by choreographer Victor Quijada. It features an original score and stunning aesthetic design that mirror the fluidity of the dancers’ movements. Five dancers offer the audience a raw experience with dynamic rhythms and physical prowess.

Founded in 2002, RUBBERBANDance is now at the forefront of Montreal’s contemporary dance community and is recognized internationally for its new and unique vision of contemporary dance theatre. RBDB has created and presented nine dance works and four short films to date, including Hasta La Proxima, a finalist in the short film category at the American Choreography Awards. The company has taken part in a large number of events in collaboration with other artists (galas, special events, video clips, demos, etc.) The group has presented throughout Canada, and has represented Canadian artistic innovation in the United States, Europe, the UK, and Japan.

Currently celebrating its 30th Anniversary Season, Live Art Dance Productions is committed to introducing audiences to the work, concerns and aesthetics of Canadian and international contemporary dance by presenting dance and performance art projects that push the boundaries of current creative practice.
