Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago returns to The Joyce with all the exuberant, athletic, and innovative technique that has contributed to its reputation as one of the country's leading contemporary dance companies. The company's Joyce season will consist of two programs and will feature works by some of the most important choreographers on the international scene: Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin, and Aszure Barton. Audiences will also have the chance to see Recall, a Joyce commission created by former Hubbard Street dancer Robyn Mineko Williams, whom The Chicago Tribune describes as "a diminutive muse."
Programs contain brief nudity.

In celebration of its 30th Anniversary season, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, the only USA/NYC based flamenco company to reach such a milestone, comes to The Joyce with a program featuring the finest dancers and musicians from New York and Spain. The artists whose "gypsy voices...coiling wrists...angry feet and curving backs...never fail to entrance an audience" (Village Voice) perform company co-founder Roberto Lorca's signature work Luz y Sombra. Also on the program—new works by the vibrant flamenco dancer and choreographer Angel Muñoz.
