Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

Cobb Great Hall

“Take a deep breath, because Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is going to take your breath away.” – The Washington Post

Long known as one of the most original forces in dance, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago celebrates its 40th anniversary with a long-awaited return to Wharton Center! A true audience favorite, the ensemble will showcase a night of works that perfectly represent its past, present and future. Opening the performance is Robyn Mineko Williams’ boldly ingenious Cloudline, and then two works by legendary choreographer Nacho Duato: Violoncello, an enthralling duet where a cello comes to life as a dancer, and the celebrated Jardi Tancat, based on Spanish folk tales with a charming, yet passionate, portrayal of three couples and their enduring spirit in the face of adversity. The performance also includes Alejandro Cerrudo’s Niebla, a masterful mix of powerful dance and lighting wizardry, and closes with the great choreographer William Forsythe’s One Flat Thing, reproduced – a thrilling adrenaline rush that is wondrous in its sense of rhythm and flow.

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