Hubbard Street Dance Chicago returns to the Auditorium Theatre after 20 years for a special two-night engagement devoted entirely to work by Hubbard Street’s Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo. Learn more about the program below!
Originally performed in 2006 at the Harris Theater as part of the Inside/Out Choreographic Workshop, this is the first piece Cerrudo choreographed for Hubbard Street’s main company. Lickety-Split combines a sensual and fluid movement with playful gestures. Danced by three couples enveloped in the unpredictable layers of love, Lickety-Split is a contemporary work performed to the sounds of renowned Bay Area songwriter Devendra Banhart. It is a showcase for the multifaceted talent of the company’s artists. The piece features lighting design by Hyan J. O’Gara and costume design by Rebecca Shouse.
This piece premiered in April of 2009, and was Cerrudo’s third work created for Hubbard Street. Staged for seven dancers, this piece features costume design by Branimira Ivanova and lighting design by Nicholas Philips. The music is comprised of 16 passages from a variety of movie scores.
Chicago Premiere of Silent Ghost
This piece originally premiered in July of 2015 at the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet with original music by Dustin Hamman, King Creosote & John Hopkins, Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm. This engagement will mark its Chicago premiere.
The evening will culminate in the world premiere of a piece created specifically for this performance series, with the space of the Auditorium Theatre in mind.
