Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s 43rd season opens with a virtual premiere presentation of new work from former Hubbard Street dancer and acclaimed choreographer Rena Butler. The 25-minute work, entitled “A Tale of Two,” features music by composer Darryl Joseph, as well as songs by vocalists Shawnee Dez and Alencia Norris and is performed by the full HSDC company. In addition to the presentation of the filmed piece, there will be a live, interactive conversation with Butler and other members of the creative team. The choreography, casting, rehearsals and filming all took place during the pandemic and required the dancers to perform outdoors at a distance from one another, or in groups of dancers who reside together, while wearing masks.
Event Cost: Free, RSVP for link to performance.
Event Times: 6 p.m. Thursday & Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday.
