    Netherlands Dance Theater 2 – Legion

    Choreographer: Douglas Lee These dancers work the floor as well as they work above it. The way they use their bodies is akin to how tools or instruments are used for a particular end…though the choreography, as deliberate as it is, has an experimental feel to it as well. The sequence beginning at 1:27 with the beautiful transitions and liquid nature of the choreography is exquisite. The repetitive nature of the music is perfect in that it allows the focus […]

    Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and LINES Ballet collaborate. 2012 Summer Residency Choreographer: Alonzo King Though their orientations may be slightly different, LINES more classical and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago more contemporary, the merger of these companies for a three-week period in 2012 saw a blending of these two dance styles. However, were it not for the openness and acceptance of challenges that both these companies’ dancers brought to this creative effort, this would not have been possible. Watch how the […]
