Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

“Hubbard Street Dance Chicago ought to bottle itself as a cure for the ills of the era.” (New York Times)

One of the most original forces in contemporary dance, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has long been known for its exceptionally talented dancers and adventurous choreography. Under Glenn Edgerton’s artistic direction, this contemporary ballet company is arguably at the top of its game. The Friday performance features a compendium of work by Ohad Naharin who puts together a choreographic collage every ten years, with each iteration unique to its selected company. Saturday brings together three choreographers who are redefining what it means to make dance today, including Emma Portner, famous for her imaginative viral dance videos, and the two co-founders of Movement Art Is, all performed with live music by Third Coast Percussion. “Take a deep breath, because Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is going to take your breath away.” (The Washington Post)

Please note: The Friday, October 19 performance includes explicit language.
