Hubbard Street Spring Series
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
One of the first dance companies in the U.S. to perform work by global choreographer Nacho Duato, Hubbard Street pays tribute to its two-decade relationship with the Spanish-born artist by reviving his plaintive, pastoral Jardí Tancat (1983), for three couples and set to Catalan music recorded by vocalist María del Mar Bonet i Verdaguer; and a duet from Multiplicity. Forms of Silence and Emptiness (1999), Duato’s two-act tribute to the composer J. S. Bach. Completing the Spring Series program are Lucas Crandall’s full-company work Imprint (2016), with improvised live percussion by Hubbard Street Dancer David Schultz; and Crystal Pite’s Solo Echo (2012), to music for cello and piano by Johannes Brahms.
