Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

HEATHER WISNER
7:30 pm Wednesday, Feb. 13., Wednesday February 13 | $26–$64.
 
One of the country’s better contemporary dance companies, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago returns to Portland three years after its last visit, bringing along a program of exclusively Israeli choreography. A warm reception is likely: Local dancegoers should recognize not only some of the company’s nearly two-dozen dancers but the dance makers as well, particularly Ohad Naharin, whose Batsheva Dance Company has also appeared locally. Naharin, who has a gift for spellbinding movement, wove together two of his company’s existing pieces—Three and Max—into a new piece called Three to the Max, developed specifically for Hubbard Street and built from a dance language of Naharin’s own devising, called “Gaga.” Sharon Eyal, a former Batsheva choreographer, also contributes work, called Too Beaucoup; it’s set to a soundtrack spanning Gang of Four to Leonard Cohen to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
