HUBBARD STREET & LINES BALLET PERFORM SEPT 14 & 15 at UC Irvine

Dates:
September 14, 2012, 7PM &
September 15, 2012, 6PM

Venue:
Claire Trevor Theatre, UC Irvine

Be the first to see the culmination of a one-of-a-kind collaborative residency between two of America’s most prestigious contemporary dance companies — Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Alonzo King LINES Ballet. The two dance companies join in an unprecedented sneak-peek showing, highlighting the emotional nuances of movement.

Hubbard Street and LINES Ballet share the stage to present an inspiring new work by LINES Artistic Director Alonzo King, created within the dance studios of UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts Dance Department. LINES Ballet’s ethereal and linear neo-classical focus joins Hubbard Street’s earthy and athletic contemporary style. This fusion of contrasts informs the content of the new work, as King experiments with pairing dancers across companies and creating intriguing new movement.

Informal showings plus a post-show Q & A with the Artistic Directors.

Claire Trevor Theatre
Friday, Sept. 14 7:00 p.m.
