Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, one of America’s favorite contemporary companies, celebrates their 36th year with a Minneapolis program including Casi-Casa by famed Swedish master choreographer Mats Ek (whose Swan Lake had Minnesota audiences raving when the Cullberg Ballet performed it here in 2002). Known for its innovative repertoire, Hubbard Street was the first American company to stage this physically and theatrically inventive piece. Casi-Casa fuses jazz and bagpipes with electronic music and rock. Elements of an everyday life are distorted in a surreal landscape that literally tilts, where household items like vacuums occasionally become dance partners. The program also includes two pieces by resident company choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo: Little Mortal Jump, a black-and-white themed piece tailor made to showcase the company’s talent, PACOPEPEPLUTO, a series of three exquisite solos strung together by their vivacious physicality, and a new untitled world premiere from Robyn Mineko Williams.
