Among the world’s top contemporary dance companies and a global cultural ambassador, Hubbard Street Dance demonstrates fluency in a wide range of techniques and forms, and deep comprehension of abstract artistry and emotional nuance. Celebrating its 37th season, the company is critically acclaimed for its exuberant and innovative repertoire featuring works by master American and international choreographers. Hubbard Street’s artists hail from four countries and 12 U.S. states, and comprise a superlative ensemble of virtuosity and versatility.

Hubbard Street’s Bass Concert Hall program is a mixed repertory of works by Jiří Kylián, Nacha Duato, and Alejandro Cerrudo. It includes Kylián’s Sarabande (1990) – for an all-male ensemble and set to Bach’s second partita for solo violin with electronically manipulated live vocals; Kylián’s Falling Angels (1989) – for a cast of eight women and set to part one of Steve Reich’s phased-percussion composition, “Drumming: Part 1;” Duato’s Gnawa (2005) – set to music by Hassan Hakmoun and Adam Rudolph, this ensemble work taps the Mediterranean spirit of North Africa and Duato’s native Spain; Cerrudo’s Pacopeppepluto (2011) – seven minutes of solo dancing for men set to songs popularized by Dean Martin in the ‘50s and ‘60s; and Cerrudo’s Cloudless (2013) – a pair of women echo, reflect, and shadow each other in this intimate, encrypted duet for female dancers.

“A near-perfect storm of movement, music and choreography.”
