Enjoy a full evening of works by celebrated contemporary choreographer Jirí Kylián in Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's Spring Series at the Harris Theater. You'll be treated to company premieres of Falling Angels and Sarabande along with audience favorites Petite Mort and 27'52". One of six "black and white" works by Kylián, Sarabande features an all-male ensemble and is set to Bach's second partita for solo violin with electronically manipulated sound, made live by the dancers' bodies and voices. The work's counterpart is the driving, hypnotic Falling Angels, set to part one of Steve Reich's phased-percussion composition, Drumming. One of Kylián's most popular works, Petite Mort was created for the 1991 Salzburg Festival commemorating the second centenary of Mozart's death. And the quotidian becomes epic in the masterwork 27'52". Composer Dirk Haubrich's original score borrows two themes by Gustav Mahler as well as text by Baudelaire and Bruce Lee, among others, and demonstrates how Kylián's style shifted at the start of the new millennium.

Since its founding by Lou Conte in 1977, Hubbard Street has grown through the establishment of multiple platforms. Each is dedicated to the support and advancement of dance as an art form, as a practice, and as a method for generating and sustaining communities of all kinds.
Hubbard Street 2, directed by Terence Marling, cultivates young professional dancers, identifies next-generation choreographers, and performs domestically and abroad, in service of arts education, collaboration, experimentation and audience development. Extensive Youth, Education and Community Programs, directed by Kathryn Humphreys, are models in the field of arts education, linking the performing company’s creative mission to the lives of students and families.
Youth Dance Program classes at the Hubbard Street Dance Center are open to young dancers ages 18 months to 16 years.
