Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

January 16, 2018

Venue Matthews Theatre

Overview

Currently celebrating its 40th anniversary and now under the artistic direction of Glen Edgerton,  Hubbard Street Dance Chicago combines explosive energy, theatrical jazz, and the technique of classical ballet into a style uniquely its own. The toast of the Chicago dance scene, the company’s repertoire reads like a “who’s who” of today’s major choreographers, including Nacho Duato, Jiři Kylián, Ohad Naharin, Twyla Tharp, and its current resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo. But Edgerton has added significant new voices such as Mats Ek, Sharon Eyal, and Alonzo King, as well as continuing its collaboration with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
