Alejandro Cerrudo World Premiere, New Work by Robyn Mineko Williams and More Set for Hubbard Street's 2013 Season
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, under the artistic leadership of Glenn Edgerton, presents four hometown engagements in its 2013-14 season, all at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance (205 East Randolph Drive, Chicago), plus domestic and international touring dates.
Season 36 features the inclusion of works by all five of Hubbard Street's signature, international choreographers - Nacho Duato, Mats Ek, William Forsythe, Ji?í Kylián and Ohad Naharin - a programming coup 16 years in the making. (Performances of Duato's Na Floresta and Jardi Tancat in 1997 were the company's first presentations of work by any of these five major artists.) Season 36 also includes a World Premiere by Hubbard Street Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo and new work by rising artist Robyn Mineko Williams.
Hubbard Street's Fall Series begins Season 36 at the Harris Theater October 10-13, 2013. A diverse lineup was designed specifically to showcase Hubbard Street's "dancers of spectacular versatility" (The Los Angeles Times). Fall Series performances feature Passomezzo (1989), an athletic, romantically tough duet by Israeli dance artist Ohad Naharin; a new work by Robyn Mineko Williams, 2012 winner of the Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition; Casi-Casa (2009) by Swedish master choreographer Mats Ek; and the quintet "Compass" from AZIMUTH (2013), Hubbard Street's Joyce Award-funded commission by celebrated Bay Area choreographer Alonzo King.
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, under the artistic leadership of Glenn Edgerton, celebrates its 36th season in 2013 and 2014. Among the world's top contemporary dance companies and a global cultural ambassador, Hubbard Street demonstrates fluency in a wide range of techniques and forms, and deep comprehension of abstract artistry and emotional nuance. The company is critically acclaimed for its exuberant and innovative repertoire, featuring works by master American and international choreographers. Hubbard Street's artists hail from four countries and 12 U.S. states, and comprise a superlative ensemble of virtuosity and versatility.
