Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Returns with a Special 40th Anniversary Program at the Irvine Barclay Theater in Irvine.
One of America’s most influential contemporary dance companies kicks off the 2017-18 season
First presented by the Barclay nearly 27 years ago under the auspices of its founding artistic director, Lou Conte, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago has become one of America’s most influential contemporary dance companies. The company is known now for its eclectic, international repertory and for its impeccable dancers.
In celebration of the company’s 40th anniversary, Glenn Edgerton, the current artistic director and company visionary, will curate a special program including works from choreographers such as William Forsythe, Robyn Mineko Williams and Nacho Duato.
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s core purpose is to bring artists, art and audiences together to enrich, engage, educate, transform and change lives through the experience of dance. Celebrating Season 40 in 2017–18, under the artistic leadership of Glenn Edgerton, Hubbard Street continues to innovate, supporting ascendant creative talent while presenting repertory by internationally recognized living artists. Hubbard Street has grown through the establishment of multiple platforms alongside the Lou Conte Dance Studio — now in its fifth decade of providing a wide range of public classes and pre-professional training — while extensive Youth, Education, Community, Adaptive Dance and Family Programs keep the organization deeply connected to its hometown.
