It’s not often that the words “Chicago” and “Jackson” go together in the same sentence, but this week Dancers’ Workshop is putting them side by side.
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, a contemporary company from the Windy City, is set to be in town for a 17-day residency. Guest choreographer Kyle Abraham will join Hubbard Street in the project as the group prepares for the 2020 premiere of a new work in its hometown.
While in town Hubbard Street will put on a series of “Undercover Episodes” that will occur across town Thursday to Monday. The exact times and locations for the free performances haven’t all been disclosed, but one is set for 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Snake River Brewing Co. Keep checking the calendar on the Dancers’ Workshop website for a to-be-released schedule.
If you want to sit down and watch the collective work in a traditional studio setting, drop into Dancers’ Workshop at 3 p.m. Sunday or 5:30 p.m. Sept. 19 to see Hubbard Street at work during an open rehearsal.
The Chicago group will also collaborate with Dancers’ Workshop’s resident company, Contemporary Dance Wyoming, throughout its visit.
