For 46 years, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has been one of the most original forces in contemporary dance, bringing artists, art and audiences together to enrich, engage, educate and change lives through the experience of dance.
The company will perform a program of mixed repertory including Coltrane’s Favorite Things, choreographed by Lar Lubovitch. The work is inspired by and danced to John Coltrane’s 1963 “Live in Copenhagen” interpretation of Richard Rodgers’ “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music. The backdrop for the dance is a reproduction of Jackson Pollock’s landmark painting "Autumn Rhythm." With this dance, Lubovitch reimagines the choreographic possibilities of jazz, creating a vibrant counterpart to the impulsiveness of two 20th century artistic giants.
Aszure Barton’s poignant BUSK simultaneously celebrates and scrutinizes the essence of what it means to perform, laying bare complex layers of human experience and emotion through mesmerizing multitasking movements.
