Victor Rubilar


“I never thought of being a performer. It had never been a dream, until it happened. At that point, I was 15, I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. And it’s been that way since. The first time I was in front of an audience was an event at my mother’s company. I got to perform for her 20 clients at a dinner. I’m sure it was a horrible show but since then it has become the entire purpose of my life.” - Catch Victor Rubilar’s act—stunts with soccer balls, acrobatics, dance and more—at the Halifax Busker Festival August 2-7, for full listings see buskers.ca
