Little mortal jump (2012)

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

Alejandro Cerrudo’s tenth creation for Hubbard Street takes a cinematic approach to stagecraft, introducing its viewers to a mysterious place where dancers have dreamlike encounters. Their contents unknown, dark objects hide and reveal these characters, and remain once the dancers disappear.

Son of Chamber Symphony
by Stanton Welch

The Joffrey Ballet

John Adams’ deconstructed music led Mr. Welch to take standard ballet traditions, turn them inside out and evolve them into new ideas. It is technically challenging, intellectual and sensual. The dance can be enjoyed as a visual enhancement of the score, for the physical achievements of the dancers, or entertainingly to spot the short quotes or allusions to familiar works.
