Noted for its diverse and innovative repertoire, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago presents dance that will inspire, challenge, and engage. This ambitious program includes a West Coast premiere by Hubbard Street's first-ever resident choreographer, Alejandro Cerrudo, set to music by UC Berkeley-trained Mason Bates. Nacho Duato's Arcangelo (set to Corelli and Scarlatti) meditates thoughtfully on the Baroque conception of Heaven and Hell. And Jiří Kylián's 27'52" reveals the gifted choreographer's obsession with time, in which both motion and spoken text move forward and backward in startling combinations—a work that routinely leaves viewers in disbelief, wondering how it all could be physically possible.
Program: Nacho Duato: Arcangelo, music by Corelli and Scarlatti · Alejandro Cerrudo: Deep Down Dos, music by Mason Bates · Alejandro Cerrudo: Blanco, music by Felix Mendelssohn and Charles Valentin Alkan · Jiří Kylián: 27'52", music by Dirk Haubrich based on Mahler
These performances are funded in part by the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Community Connections Fund of the MetLife Foundation.
