Second Coming by Victor Quijada
Heavily influenced by the Los Angeles street-dance culture Quijada grew up in, Second Coming is an exclusive commission for Scottish Dance Theatre’s exquisite dancers, who perform the work with their trademark attack: a consummate style savvy and commitment that pushes dance into total performance. Quijada sets his world–acclaimed breaking style to a potent turntablist soundtrack of classical samples and cavernous soundscapes by DJ/composer Jasper Gahunia (AKA DJ Lil’ Jaz). Lighting by Yan Lee Chan and costume design by Anna Fleischle.
Quijada’s RUBBERBANDance Group is at the forefront of Montreal's contemporary dance community and is recognized internationally for its new and unique vision of contemporary dance theatre. His work fuses Hip Hop and classical movement vocabularies and a contemporary dance sensibility, creating a striking movement signature. Scottish Dance Theatre's assured company of dance stars push Quijada's choreographic signature to stylish extremes. Scottish Dance Theatre commissioned Second Coming in 2012 and since its first preview show, it has never failed to delight audiences - across Scotland and nationally.... so far.
