ARTSPASS EXCLUSIVE: Malpaso Dance Company / Hubbard Street Dance
Saturday, March 2, 7:30 PM Auditorium Theatre 50 E Ida B. Wells Dr
The “Made in Chicago” 312 Series presents artists and companies direct from the 312! Two acclaimed contemporary dance companies—one known for its influence on America’s contemporary dance scene and one that is innovating Cuban dance in Havana—join forces for the first time. In addition to a collaborative work danced by both companies, Malpaso performs a world-premiere piece by Chicago’s Robyn Mineko Williams, commissioned by the Auditorium Theatre, and Hubbard Street performs a work by Malpaso Artistic Director Osnel Delgado. Malpaso dancers are “both humble and sparklingly present—and remarkably strong all around” (The New York Times), while Hubbard Street’s dancing is “as breathtaking as ever” (WTTW). Don’t miss these forward-thinking dance pioneers when they hit the Auditorium Theatre’s stage. Join us for a pre-show talk before the performance.
Tickets: $15 student ticket and free transportation with UCID (limit 1 ticket per UCID)
