LAKELAND, Fla. (Feb. 6, 2009) — Florida Southern College and the Festival of Fine Arts welcome the world-renowned Hubbard Street Dance Chicago on Feb. 21. The performance takes place at 7:30 p.m. in Branscomb Auditorium on the Florida Southern campus.
One of the most renowned dance institutions in the world, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago celebrates more than 30 years of performances for audiences worldwide, featuring leading national and international choreographers and dancers. The company has appeared at celebrated dance venues including the American Dance Festival, DanceAspen, the Holland Dance Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Joyce Theater, Kennedy Center, Ravinia Festival, Wolf Trap Festival, Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds (Italy), Englands Sadler's Wells Theatre and The Brighton Festival, and the Galway Arts Festival (Ireland).
Dance performances include "Strokes Through the Tail," by choreographer Marguerite Donlon, a tightly knit work in which the dancers celebrate composer Mozart's ingenious wit and humor; "The Constant Shift of Pulse," choreographed by Doug Varone, an intricate and visually powerful piece illuminating the purity of movement as dancers challenge the viewer's concept of the relationship between personal and shared space; and "Minus 16," by choreographer Ohad Naharin, a clever and inspiring piece that starts with an unexpected choice of music, ranging from Dean Martin to cha cha to traditional Israeli folk music.
Hubbard Street Dance is funded in part by the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts, with lead funding from Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Additional funding is provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation and MetLife Foundation.
Tickets are $35. FSC students are admitted free of charge; non-FSC students admitted at half price. For ticket information, contact the Branscomb Auditorium box office at (863) 680-4296.
