Hubbard Street Dance Chicago reprises a work it premiered last fall to rave reviews. The Chicago Tribune called resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo's One Thousand Pieces a bit of "dance heaven." The work was inspired by Marc Chagall's landmark 1977 stained-glass installment, America Windows and is set to the music of Philip Glass. Cerrudo himself calls the stained-glass artwork his inspiration, the music of Philip Glass his frame, the Harris Theater stage his canvas and the Hubbard Street dancers his paintbrush. With Cerrudo, you know you can expect twists and turns, surprises and unforgettable images. Don't miss the return of this masterpiece of dance. Learn More

Having just seen Alvin Ailey which was marvelous - with some breathtaking soloists - and even though the second number was an Ailey piece, I just didn't find the passion and the interesting correography which we saw at the CSO Hubbard St. Performance. We were sitting way back at Harris - perhaps that had something to do with our feelings.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, one of the world’s premiere contemporary dance companies, will burn the stage this May with the Chicago premiere of LINES Ballet artistic director Alonzo King’s Following the Subtle Current Upstream, which will mark the beginning of an unprecedented multi-year collaboration between Hubbard Street and the San Francisco based dance company.
Hubbard Street’s Summer Series will also offer the return of 2010 audience favorites: Jirí Kylián’s powerful and striking 27’52” that had its Chicago premiere in March 2010 at the Harris Theater; and a revival of Untouched, a spellbinding work created for the company in May 2010 by illustrious choreographer Aszure Barton.
