Solo EchoN.N.N.N.Second to LastGnawa
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago captivated audiences when they first appeared here two years ago. Now, these 18 gorgeous dancers–artists of unparalleled talent and versatility will fill the Northrop stage with a stunning contemporary repertory program. Opening the show is choreographer Crystal Pite’s Solo Echo, followed by Alejandro Cerrudo's Second to Last and William Forsythe’s all-male N.N.N.N. while Nacho Duato’s haunting Gnawa rounds out the evening. Created expressly for the Hubbard Street dancers, Gnawa is a vision of mysterious beauty and sensual elegance that transports us to the Mediterranean with Sufi-influenced Moroccan songs, Spanish guitar, and North African drumming.
