Ever So Slightly

RUBBERBAND / Victor Quijada (Montréal)  

19 – 20 May 2020 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2020Dance / performance

With Ever So Slightly, Victor Quijada takes 10 dancers into a raw post-industrial world. The stage is bare, on an elevated platform the musicians dominate the action, which begins quietly and harmoniously at first, but gradually gets out of control. Quijada combines delicacy and finesse with brute, explosive movements to capture the energy of urgency, revolt and flight from danger. Visible are the reflexes and mechanisms that emerge to counter aggression and the constant annoyances. The volatile mood between harmony and chaos is carried not least by the soundscape of the DJ and the musician, who in dialogue with the dance react, provoke and appease. Already in 2017 Victor Quijada captivated the festival’s audience with Vic's Mix. The unique movement language of the Canadian company – a virtuoso balance of forces sprinkled with hip hop, capoeira and martial arts – makes his pieces unmistakable. So is Ever So Slightly, which uses superbly the impulses of the "very light".
