Dance: Sweden and Israel Via Chicago

May 12th, 2013

When it comes to trendy, glamorous repertory, it’s hard to think of an American company as well stocked as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. The list of choreographers who have worked with this immaculately technical group reads like an international who’s who of contemporary dance. Take, for instance, Sweden’s Mats Ek, revered in Europe but rarely seen in the United States; Aszure Barton, originally from Alberta, Canada; and Israel’s Ohad Naharin, the director of the Batsheva Dance Company, whose improvisation method, Gaga, has a global following.

Mr. Ek’s “Casi-Casa” and Mr. Naharin’s “Three to Max” make up one of two programs that Hubbard Street is bringing to the Joyce Theater. Its director, Glenn Edgerton, has also been nurturing homegrown talent: the other program, besides Ms. Barton’s “Untouched,” includes works by the resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo and a former company member, Robyn Mineko Williams. (7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, through May 26, 175 Eighth Avenue, at 19th Street, Chelsea, 212-242-0800, joyce.org; $ 10 to $ 69.)
