Hubbard Street’s Season 39 Summer Series kicks off a full year in celebration of the company’s 40th anniversary. The Summer Series combines audience favorites representing all four decades of Hubbard Street’s history, including Founding Artistic Director Lou Conte’s full-company The 40s, Hubbard Street’s longtime signature work; Conte’s beloved duet Georgia, originally premiered in 1987 as part of the triptych “Rose from the Blues”; Twyla Tharp’s The Golden Section, premiered on Broadway in 1981, and debuted by Hubbard Street in the Netherlands in 1991; the full-company work One Flat Thing, reproduced by William Forsythe and solo A Picture of You Falling by Crystal Pite; and excerpts including scenes from Palladio (2007) by former Hubbard Street Artistic Director Jim Vincent, and One Thousand Pieces (2012), the company’s first evening-length production, created by Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo in response to Marc Chagall’s America Windows at the Art Institute of Chicago.
