Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

When: Fri., Oct. 29, 8 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 30, 8 p.m. 2010

Thirty-three years of innovation have helped Hubbard Street Dance Chicago evolve into one of America's most adventurous contemporary ballet companies, with a repertoire created by a who's who of international choreographers. You won't see any tutus with this group, but do expect startling athleticism, edgy staging, and music from the melodic to the avant-garde. Cal Performanceswelcomes Hubbard Street to Zellerbach Hall (Bancroft Ave. at Dana St., Berkeley) on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 22-23, for a program of four pieces: Arcangelo, Nacho Duato's meditation on heaven and hell, set to music by Corelli and Scarlatti; 27'52", a mix of movement and spoken word by Nederland Dans Theater's JiriKylián; and the West Coast premieres of Deep Down Dos (with music by Mason Bates, who trained at UC Berkeley) and Blanco, created by Hubbard Street dancer and resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo. 8 p.m., $21-$60. 510-642-9988 or CalPerformances.org
