RUBBERBAND founder and Artistic Director Victor Quijada brings together classical dance composition and West Coast hip-hop like no one before him; his company is recognized worldwide for its innovation and athleticism.

The evening-length Ever So Slightly is a prime example of RUBBERBAND style, simultaneously delivering delicacy, brutality, finesse, and high-voltage action. The dance explores a modern dilemma — how do we find calm and resilience in a chaotic world, how can we get to a zone where noise and aggressivity no longer have a place?

With 10 irrepressible dancers, a  DJ, and a wide-open venue, Ever So Slightly explores the behavioral mechanisms and reflexes we develop to face aggression and the constant flow of annoyances bombarding us every day. The space, the distorted bodies, and the live music result in a production on steroids, a combination of delicacy and finesse with brute, high-voltage movement to capture the energy of urgency, revolt, and flight from danger.

Ever So Slightly was commissioned by The Performing Arts Center, Purchase College.


Fascinated by the raw dynamic of hip-hop and breakdancing and the purity of classical formalism, choreographer and RUBBERBAND Artistic Director Victor Quijada has been demolishing barriers between these contrasting dance styles for more than 15 years. His signature technique blends urban and contemporary dance, with a focus on interpretation, decision-taking, the use of rhythmic variations, and complex, physically demanding choreography.
