"Hubbard Street Dance Chicago"
 
   Hubbard Street Dance Chicago opens at Sadler's Wells on Wednesday - their first ever visit to this country - and also plays the Brighton Dome on May 14 and 15.

They're bringing a programme almost entirely new to us - the only familiar piece being David Parsons' The Envelope. We've also seen a piece by Trey McIntyre, Second before the Ground, done by Houston Ballet last year, and Daniel Ezralow's works are done by a number of companies.

At home their repertory also includes Duato, Naharin, Tharp, Kylian and other familiar names. Their style is said to be a mixture of modern and ballet technique fused with jazz, and when I asked for some first-hand opinions on balletalert, someone described the dancers as "quite beautiful and talented - high energy and exquisite quality". So it sounds as if it should be an entertaining evening. It will be interesting, too, to compare them with Rambert, who follow them into Sadler's Wells.

So let's hear from anyone who's going to see them!

   I'm planning to go tomorrow (Wednesday) Interested persons might like to know that the Standard is doing a special offer on this one. Ring the Box Office mentioning the Standards "Hot tickets" and you get two tickets for the price of one.

   Do be aware that the offer is (now) only available for the Saturday matinee, which is a family matinee and therefore not the full programme (the Marguerite Donlon work is omitted).

I think the Donlan work is gone from the entire programme - not sure what replaced it (or why!)

   They're still doing the Donlon piece in Brighton, but at Sadler's Wells it's been replaced by director Jim Vincent's 'counter/part'.

   Sorry, I was going from the SW season brochure, not anything more up-to-date.
