Hubbard Street Dance Chicago introduces audiences to original, cutting-edge contemporary dance through new and diverse repertoire created by an eclectic group of the world's leading choreographers.

While many contemporary dance peers are single choreographer organizations, Hubbard Street has always been a repertory company, representing fresh, bold new works that evoke inspiration, thought and conversation to continually push the art of dance forward.

Below is a complete listing of the current and historical repertoire performed by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (HSDC) and the second company, Hubbard Street 2 (HS2). Years listed are the world premieres for original works, or the years each work was acquired or first licensed by Hubbard Street if premiered elsewhere.
