The 40s by Lou Conte
Georgia by Lou Conte
Celebrating 40 years as a major force in American contemporary dance, Hubbard Street’s superlative dancers will return to Northrop with a program of highlights from the company’s impressive history. Lou Conte’s vision when he first established his dance school at LaSalle and Hubbard Street in the 1970s is honored with his joyous romp, The 40s. William Forsythe’s One Flat Thing, reproduced hurtles us (and 20 metal tables) to the clatteringly contemporary present. In between, we’ll experience works by Crystal Pite, called “One of the greatest choreographic minds of her generation,” (Financial Times) and sensuously beautiful dances from Nacho Duato.
“One Flat Thing, reproduced is a showstopper.” –The New York Times
