A leader in contemporary dance, the always-enthralling Hubbard Street Dance Chicago presents three compelling works of dance-theater that bring a sizzle to their Season 38 Spring Series showcase. In resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo's The Impossible, an aging couple looks back on their youth through poignant, surprising scenes that raise intriguing questions about memory, mortality, partnership and the resilience of the human spirit. In contrast, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano's I Am Mister B is a witty, exuberant and fast-paced homage to the great ballet choreographer George Balanchine. Created exclusively for Hubbard Street, this piece is set to the celebratory final movement of Tchaikovsky's third suite for orchestra in G major, with gossamer, deep-blue set designs by Spanish artist Luis Crespo. Completing the program is a commanding world premiere from Lucas Crandall, a stage-filling work featuring the full ensemble, performed in boots, and inspired by the energy and velocity of stampedes. Hoof it over to Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Millennium Park to see this celebration of dance and of spring's arrival.
