Sneak Preview! Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
If you're curious about what Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will perform at Sangamon Auditorium - here is your sneak preview! The company is planning to present 3 pieces during the performance on Thursday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. Off Screen uses music from movies, focusing on the progression of moods and feelings found in both film and music. The Constant Shift of Pulse is an intricate and visually powerful piece that illuminates the purity of movement as the dancers test the boundaries of trust and release. The third work, Minus 16, features unexpected music choices, ranging from Dean Martin to cha cha to traditional Israeli folk music. Ideas and thoughts of the choreographer and HSDC dancers captured in audio recordings add another layer to this work.
Here's a clip of HSDC performing another work titled Extremely Close.
