Over its 40-year-history, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has tackled a thrilling range of repertoire, working with both veteran choreographers and fresh voices reimagining contemporary dance for new generations. For Program A, the company’s “brisk and hot-blooded” (The Washington Post) dancers perform Nacho Duato’s first work, Jardí Tancat; Crystal Pite’s fierce Grace Engine; Alejandro Cerrudo’s enigmatic and sensual Lickety-Split; and William Forsythe’s quartet N.N.N.N. Program B features the Bay Area premiere of a new collaboration by two twentysomethings redefining what it means to make dances today—Emma Portner, who has become a sensation for her imaginative viral dance videos; and Lil Buck, who brings the street to the stage as the foremost practitioner of jookin, a vibrant urban dance form that originated in Memphis during the 1990s. The music is by producer Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) and features Chicago’s new-music sensation Third Coast Percussion performing live.
