Over the last four decades, Jacob’s Pillow has been an artistic home for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and this summe they will perform recent work including As the Wind Blows (choreographed Amy Hall Garner), B/olero (choreographed by Ohad Naharin), and Little Rhapsodies (choreographed by Lar Lubovitch).

Hubbard Street will also perform 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.

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. The New York Times wrote that Hubbard Street Dance Chicago “ought to bottle itself as a cure for the ills of the era.” The relationship between the company and the Pillow has been particularly close, encompassing more than a dozen engagements since 1983, and including an unusual two-week season in 1990.

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. Fisher-Harrell was a dancer with Hubbard Street for three seasons, then a principal dancer with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, among other notable accomplishments.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
