RUBBERBANDance Group embodies creative risk and youthful prowess

Guelph, ON March 11, 2014 – Celebrated Montreal-based RUBBERBANDance Group is known for its creative risk taking, innovative choreography, and melding of technical expertise and dance prowess with youth inspired movements like hip-hop. The result is a hybrid of physical expression steeped in discipline and tradition with the sensibility of the street. On Friday, March 28 at 8 p.m. the company performs its latest work, Empirical Quotient, on the Main Stage at River Run Centre as part of the RBC Showcase series.

Empirical Quotient is primarily an exploration of human relationships that weaves together situations of dependence, rejection, empathy and acceptance. It is co-presented in partnership with Guelph Dance, and is a co-production of The CanDance Network Creation Fund, Danse Danse, Grand Theatre Kingston, Guelph Dance, and Le Theatre Hector-Charland, and la Société de la Place des Arts, with the kind collaboration of the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. The production had its world premier in late 2013 in Montreal and has also been staged in New York.

“Guelph Dance was thrilled for the opportunity to play a role in the creation of this new work and also to partner with River Run to bring the production to Guelph”, says Catrina von Radecki, Co-artistic director of Guelph Dance.

Over the past ten years, the duo of Victor Quijada and Anne Plamondon have developed RUBBERBANDance Group’s distinctive signature – a unique style of movement that incorporates classical, contemporary and urban dance with circus arts.
