After reconnecting with audiences this spring at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (HSDC) has announced the program for the company's return to the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, 205 E. Randolph St., to end its 2021-22 season.
The Summer Series: RE/UNION will premiere two programs on May 12-15.
Hubbard Street concludes Season 44 with two programs. Program A (May 12-13) is a two-night engagement featuring the return of Ohad Naharin's Decadance/Chicago, an evening-length work curated specifically for Hubbard Street composed of excerpts from Naharin's most celebrated pieces, including Sadeh21, Naharin's Virus and the iconic Minus 16.
Program B (May 14-15) offers two additional evenings of a mixed-repertory program: a Chicago premiere of Ne Me Quitte Pas, by Spenser Theberge, alongside selections from the season, including Aszure Barton's BUSK; George & Zalman, by Ohad Naharin; and Amy Hall Garner's latest work for Hubbard Street, As the Wind Blows.
