Gimme
A witty and playful duet by HSDC Artistic Associate Lucas Crandall, Gimme is set to the rustic score of the Norwegian Group Blå Bergens Borduner. The music's variations on tempo and rhythm emphasize the changing emotional dynamic between the two dancers. Both passionate and ironic, Gimme saturates the senses with color and delight.

…a highly original duet…performed to riveting effect by the ever bold, daring, emotionally spicy [Hubbard Street dancers].
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times, April 2005

…a tough, deliciously acrobatic duet… a stomping, muscular battle….
Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune, April 2005

Lucas Crandall (HSDC Artistic Associate, Choreographer) was born in Madison, Wisconsin and began training in modern dance at the age of 14. After receiving several scholarships in the United States and serving as an apprentice with the Milwaukee Ballet, Crandall went to Europe to perform with the Ballet du Grand Theatre in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1985, he joined Nederlands Dans Theater where he first worked with HSDC's Artistic Director, Jim Vincent. After performing with the Nederlands Dans Theater for two years, Crandall returned to the Ballet du Grand Theatre, working with choreographers including Ohad Naharin, Jirí Kylián, Mats Ek and Christopher Bruce. In 1996 he became the company's Rehearsal Director where he assisted choreographers including Oscar Araiz, Lionel Hoche, Amanda Miller, Toru Shimazaki and Etienne Frey, as well as rehearsing ballets from William Forsythe, David Parsons and Ohad Naharin.

Gimme is underwritten in part by Lisa, Adam and Kip White in honor of J. Randall White. Additional funding is provided by Marge and Lew Collens, John and Caroline Ballantine, Joel and Katie Petric Cory and Lois and Steve Eisen. Hancher Auditorium/The University of Iowa is the Exclusive Underwriting Presenter of Gimme.
