JACKSON, Wy. – Fall in the Tetons is a time of reflection, change, and artful happenings. What better way to find inspiration during this flitting season than with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago? Back for a 17-day creative residency at Dancers’ Workshop, the JH community can expect pop-up performances around town and open rehearsals – all free and fun for all ages. This effervescent and beloved internationally-acclaimed company was last in Jackson for DW’s 2018 Gala Celebration, and DW has been counting down the days until their return – HSDC is in residence September 3-20.
This residency is chock full of incredible experiences!
Those with students enrolled in Dancers’ Workshop’s youth program may notice guest-instruction by one of Hubbard’s illustrious dancers. Others who are passing through the DW halls may glimpse pliant and precise dancers in rehearsal with one of New York’s most sensational choreographers, Kyle Abraham. Everyone has the opportunity to engage with Hubbard Street and the dancers of Contemporary Dance Wyoming during a series of “Undercover Episodes” by guest choreographer Robyn Mineko Williams (Read: pop-up performances in backyards, alleyways, and local haunts.) This is not to be missed!
Experience the creation of new work during two open rehearsals. Abraham’s movement, described as investigating “identity in relation to a personal history,” invites introspection and discussion. Watch as HSDC deftly takes on the challenge that this kind of work entails.
Get up close and personal with the dancers of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago the next couple of weeks – as a student, fellow dancer or audience member. Cozy up to the art, mix and mingle post-event and take time to reflect on your experiences the next time you hit the trail. The below will be opportunities to see them in action:
