Hubbard Street Dance Chicago in Full Spin

Let’s just say that Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (HSDC) is in a state of perpetual motion. Consider the following updates about the company:

± A 12th world premiere by its resident choreographer, Alejandro Cerrudo, has been added to the Fall Series (Oct. 10–13 at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance), joining a new work by Robyn Mineko Williams (the former HSDC dancer-turned-choreographer who was just named the winner of a 2013 Choreography Fellowship from the Princess Grace Foundation–USA). Costumes for Williams’ work will be created by fashion designer Hogan McLaughlin. Completing the Fall program are works by master choreographers Ohad Naharin and Mats Ek.

± Two dancers with impressive resumes have joined the main company for its 36th season. They are Bryna Pascoe, formerly of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, and Andrew Murdock, most recently of Aszure Barton & Artists. In addition, Emilie Leriche has been promoted from Hubbard Street 2, which itself has announced three new members — Andrea Thompson of Maplewood, N.J.; Odbayar Batsuuri of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia; and Adrienne Lipson of London, Ontario, Canada.

± The winners of Hubbard Street’s 14th annual National Choreographic Competition are Alex Soares of São Paulo, Brazil and Loni Landon of New York. Like Robyn Mineko Williams, Landon also received a 2013 Choreography Fellowship from the Princess Grace Foundation–USA. Both artists will create new works for Hubbard Street 2 that will premiere early in 2014.

± Single tickets to the HSDC season at the Harris Theater will go on sale Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. For the first 48 hours they are on sale, these tickets will be $48 — a special, limited-time offer that represents savings of up to $51 per ticket, and is good for all four Chicago programs during the 2013-2014 season.
