HUBBARD STREET DANCE CHICAGO 

Celebrating 40 years in 2017/18 season as one of the most original forces in contemporary dance, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has long been known for its exceptionally talented dancers and a diverse repertoire of adventurous choreography. Under the artistic direction of Glenn Edgerton, this contemporary ballet company that "is going to take your breath away" (The Washington Post) is arguably at the top of its game. Today, the main company is comprised of 18 dancers who display unparalleled versatility and virtuosity. One of the only U.S. dance companies to operate year-round, Hubbard Street continues to produce bold and passionate performances in Chicago, and tour domestically as well as internationally.

When it comes to touring, Hubbard Street’s approach is flexible and focused on finding the program best-suited to your venue. 40th anniversary tour will feature a diverse repertoire including: retrospective works from Twyla Tharp (The Golden Section) and Lou Conte (The 40s, and Georgia) - as well as pieces by world class choreographers William Forsythe (One Flat Thing Reproduced, N.N.N.N.), Crystal Pite (Solo Echo, and A Picture of You Falling), Nacho Duato (Jardi Tancat, and Multiplicity duet), in addition to works by resident choreographers Alejandro Cerrudo, Robyn Mineko Williams, and a new work by Brian Brooks, entitled Terrain.

PRESS

“Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

ought to bottle itself as a cure

for the ills of the era.”

The New York Times

 

“Take a deep breath, because

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

is going to take your breath away."

The Washington Post

“Watching Hubbard Street Dance

Chicago perform works by Jiri Kylian

and Nacho Duato is like watching

Oscar-winning actors deliver David

Mamet dialogue, or the Los Angeles Lakers

play under coach Phil Jackson. It's a

little miracle of mastery, a perfect

match of material and expression.”
