Hubbard Street Dance Chicago at Musco Center

01.17.19

Musco Center for the Arts at Chapman University presents the American dance institution, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago on Thursday, January 24 at 7:30pm.

Hubbard Street’s Musco Center debut features a diverse program by internationally recognized living artists. As the first U.S. dance company to perform dance-making icon William Forsythe’s N.N.N.N. (2002), Hubbard Street will perform a new version of the dance piece restaged by original cast members Cyril Baldy and Amancio Gonzalez.


Closing out the program is Grace Engine (2011) by 2018 Dance Magazine Award Honoree, choreographer Crystal Pite. Known for her dance company, Kidd Pivot, Pite’s intricate choreography integrates movement, original music, text and rich visual design.

Hubbard Street pays tribute to its two-decade relationship with the Spanish-born artist Nacho Duato. The company brings Duato’s plaintive, pastoral Jardí Tancat (1983) to Musco Center. The work features three couples and is set to Catalan music recorded by vocalist María del Mar Bonet i Verdaguer.

Hubbard Street resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo’s Lickety-Split (2006) is a contemporary work danced by three couples enveloped in the unpredictable layers of love. The dancers are moved in tune with the sounds of renowned Bay Area songwriter Devendra Banhart. 


Tickets for January 24 are on sale now for $35-65 at muscocenter.org or by calling the box office at 844-OC-MUSCO 844.626.8726. All print-at-home tickets include a no-cost parking pass.

Musco Center for the Arts is located on the campus of Chapman University at 415 North Glassell in Orange.
