Hubbard Street Dance Chicago
Over the last four decades, Jacob’s Pillow has been an artistic home for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Founded in 1977 by dancer and choreographer Lou Conte, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s mission is to bring artists, art and audiences together to enrich, engage, educate and change lives through the experience of dance. Since 2021, the company has been led by Artistic Director Linda-Denise Fisher-Harrell, who stepped into the role after a career as a professional dance artist and educator. This program included "As the Wind Blows" (choreographed Amy Hall Garner), "B/olero" (choreographed by Ohad Naharin), and "Little Rhapsodies" (choreographed by Lar Lubovitch). In addition, Hubbard Street performed Aszure Barton’s poignant "BUSK," called “nothing short of phenomenal” (WTTW Chicago). Barton is an innovator of form with an impressive career that includes choreographing for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the English National Ballet, and the National Ballet of Canada.
