Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is committed to keeping its dancers creating and finding innovative ways to share exceptional contemporary dance with the community, and their recent acclaimed series of films did just that. These three short film explorations were produced after the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020 and presented free to the public as part of Hubbard Street’s Season 43: A Virtual Homecoming.
A Tale of Two by Princess Grace Award-winning choreographer Rena Butler is filled with tension and tenderness, reflecting the vulnerability of youth in a violent world. In Half of Us, former Hubbard Street Dancer and Princess Grace Award-winner Robyn Mineko Williams creates a mesmerizing ebb and flow of melody and movement, as two dancers and two musicians merge their artistry upon a lonely landscape. Ended When, a cinematic solo, features an excerpt of Mineko Williams’ popular work, Cloudline.
This event will be captioned, with other accessibility services available upon request.
