Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is committed to making our organization and the world more equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist. Black lives matter.
This, That, & The Third
Rena Butler is a Hubbard Street Dancer, Hubbard Street's Choreographic Fellow, and a 2019 Princess Grace Award Winner in choreography. For this project, she invited 15 dancers from around the world to come together virtually to perform an excerpt from her work, This, That, & The Third. The work, she says, is about code switching. The segment, she says, "has each dancer in a square box, and they're just trying to break out of it and find freedom and find a voice — beyond the barriers or confines that are outlined by outside forces."
Hubbard Street Unbound
Hubbard Street Unbound was our two-week Season 42 virtual finale featuring new works and fresh projects from the artists of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
Beautiful, exhilarating, compelling, poignant, insightful, healing, enlightening, and strange. The Hubbard Street Dancers created all of this against staggering odds, in the midst of the pandemic.
Hubbard Street is committed to keeping our dancers collaborating and creating, with full salary and benefits. It is not too bold to say that this commitment is rare in the performing arts at this unprecedented time. We make this commitment because we believe that — even in a world of empty stages and empty seats — these artists still have the power to create compelling, engaging, poignant, beautiful work that shines a light on what it means to be human. If you share this belief, and if you cherish their creativity, please support Hubbard Street Dance Chicago right now.
