Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s 35th anniversary season will include premieres and audience favorites back by popular demand, the second annual danc(e)volve: New Works Festival, tours of both the West and East Coasts, and innovative collaborations with cultural partners in Chicago and around the country.
The season leads off with a full-evening work by resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo inspired by Marc Chagall’s America Windows featuring the music of Philip Glass, to be presented during the fall series at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, October 18 to 21.
On December 6 to 9, Hubbard Street will present the company premiere of Casi-Casa by Swedish choreographer Mats Ek, becoming the first U.S. company to add this work to its repertoire. Originally staged for Danza Contemporánea de Cuba in 2009, the 40-minute piece blends two of Ek’s earlier works, The Apartment and Fluke.
The spring dance season, March 14 to 17, 2013, will include the Chicago premiere of a work by Alonzo King, artistic director of Alonzo King LINES Ballet, celebrating a multi-year collaboration with King’s company.
The season concludes June 6 to 16, 2013 with the second annual, critically acclaimed danc(e)volve: New Works Festival at the MCA Stage at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the latest effort by Hubbard Street artistic director Glenn Edgerton to offer opportunities to develop choreographic talent from within and allow the dancers from both the main company and Hubbard Street 2 to explore new horizons.
