CHICAGO: Hubbard Street's Spring Series brings four masterworks by Jiří Kylián to the Harris Theater
Hubbard Street Dance
Hubbard Street’s first-ever repertory program focused on a single artist will include the company’s debut performances in Kylián’s Sarabande (1990), for an all-male ensemble and set to Bach’s second partita for solo violin with electronically manipulated live vocals; and Falling Angels (1989), for a cast of eight women and set to part one of Steve Reich’s phased-percussion composition, Drumming, to be performed live by Third Coast Percussion.
27'52'', made in 2001 for Nederlands Dans Theater 2 with an original score by Dirk Haubrich, returns, as does Kylián’s signature masterpiece to music by Mozart, Petite Mort, created for Austria’s Salzburg Festival in 1991.
