Hubbard Street Dance Chicago Summer Series

This week, June 3-6, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago will conclude its 2009-2010 season, presenting its Summer Series at Harris Theater. The company caps off its year of dance with two pieces from past repertoire and one world premiere.

The program opens with Jorma Elo's "Bitter Suite,"* first performed by HSDC in fall 2009. The company's world premiere of Aszure Barton's "Untouched" follows. Barton is noted for creating "dense environments on stage in which each performer is an individual and all are united by a shared language." To conclude the Summer Series, HSDC will reprise Toru Shimazaki's "Bardo," which the company first presented in 2006. Set to international rhythms, Shimazaki's piece has been noted for its athleticism and visual images, as dancers convey a journey between life and after world.

HSDC's Summer Series takes place on Thursday, June 3 at 7:30pm; Friday, June 4 at 8pm; Saturday, June 5 at 8pm; and Sunday, June 6 at 3pm at Harris Theater, 205 E. Randolph Dr. Tickets start at $25 and may be purchased at or through the HSDC ticket office at 312-850-9744.

*Please note, "Bitter Suite" replaces the originally scheduled performance of Alejandro Cerrudo's "Deep Down Dos," which has been postponed until next season due to music copyright.
