Hubbard Street Dance Chicago this morning announced plans for the four Chicago performances in its 2017–18 season, the company’s 40th. Hubbard Street’s fall, winter and summer series will be performed at the Harris Theater, while the spring series will mark the company’s return to the Auditorium Theatre’s stage for the first time in two decades (as revealed in the Auditorium’s own season announcement last week).
The Fall Series, September 21 to 24, will be an immersive dance installation designed by Hubbard Street artistic director Glenn Edgerton and Peter Chu taking place throughout the Harris Theater, “the first performance of its kind in Hubbard Street’s four decade history.” The Winter Series, December 7 to 10, will be devoted to choreographer Crystal Pite, featuring the full-length duet A Picture of You Falling and two Hubbard Street premieres, Grace Engine and The Other You.
The Spring Series at the Auditorium, March 23 and 24, will be dedicated to resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo, with a full evening of works from his eight years at Hubbard Street as well as new pieces. The Summer Series, back at the Harris June 7 to 10, will be a “reimagining” of choreographer Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16, first performed by Hubbard Street in 2000.
Renewals for current subscribers are on sale now, ranging from $120 to $330. New subscriptions and single tickets will become available following this year’s Summer Series, which runs June 8 to 11 at the Harris Theater.
