Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Summer Series unveils a world premiere by resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo in the same program as two company classics: internationally known choreographer William Forsythe's Quintett and Nacho Duato's Mediterranean-influenced Gnawa. Forsythe's Quintett picks up on themes of loss, hope, fear and joy heard in Gavin Bryars' 1971 composition, Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet, while Gnawa's evocative rhythms tap the Mediterranean spirit of North Africa and Duato's native Spain, with costumes by Modesto Lomba, chairman of the Spanish Fashion Designers' Association.

About the Ticket Supplier: Giordano Jazz Dance ChicagoGiordano Jazz Dance Chicago began in 1962 as Dance Incorporated Chicago and became the Giordano Dance Company in 1966 when many of its live performances were broadcast by Chicago's Public Television Station WTTW. In 1968 the company performed American jazz dance for the touring Bolshoi Ballet who were so impressed that an invitation was extended, and the company eventually toured the Soviet Union in 1974, the first jazz dance company to do so.
This focus on jazz dance led to a new name--Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago--and its current mission to develop and preserve the indigenous American art form of jazz dance, thereby creating an awareness of jazz dance as a true artistic expression of American life.
