Kyle Abraham is guest choreographing for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, which will be in town this week. to perform a number of times through Dancers’ Workshop.

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.
