Hubbard Street 2
It’s an exciting time for the University of Southern California! In our September 2014 cover story, we got a peak inside the new USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, which boasts not only former Joffrey Ballet dancer Jodie Gates at the helm, but the coveted faculty addition, William Forsythe, who begins teaching this month. To celebrate the new dance program, USC’s arts initiative Visions and Voices hosts four renowned dance companies during its 2015–16 season.
Tomorrow, September 16, Alonzo King LINES Ballet comes to USC with a mixed-bill program including Biophony, a new work set to recordings of ecosystems from around the world.
Hubbard Street 2 performs at USC, March 23, 2016. Following the performance, director and choreographer Terence Marling will engage in a discussion with Jodie Gates.
Bill T. Jones adapts his work Story/Time for USC dance and music students in March. The piece combines storytelling, music and movement.
To close out the season, Martha Graham Dance Company performs, April 27, 2016. The performance will include one Graham work danced by USC students.
