Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago started life in the '70s as a jazz dance ensemble—a no-brainer for a group based in that jazz-saturated city. But it's transformed itself over time, as contemporary dance has likewise morphed to include influences from all across the kinesthetic map. In its current iteration, Hubbard Street has looked abroad for its most innovative repertory. It's performing works by artists from the Israeli Batsheva company, which synthesize the energy of American modern dance with the technical facility of European experimentalists. Too Beaucoup explores the power of physical precision, while THREE TO MAX is a collage of recent works by Batsheva's prominent choreographer Ohad Naharin. SANDRA KURTZ
