Hubbard Street Dance Chicago: Kiss

Kiss
"The miracle of the piece is that it captures in concrete dance terms that almost palpable feeling of swimming in love, of being suspended in eternity," says The Oakland Tribune. A sensuous, provocative duet between a man and a woman, Kiss fuses ballet, modern and post-modern styles to create deep emotional resonance. "My dances reflect my interest in the information we share with each other in our daily lives that is expressed through subtle gestures," choreographer Marshall writes of her work.

…this airborne pas de deux creates such a sense of physical passion and emotional tension, ardor and despair, entrapment and freedom, that it leaves you spinning along with the lovers…a sense of ferocious intimacy and such a palpable heat that you could not help but be swept away.
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times, March 2004

…a case study for making the perfect aerial dance.
Theodore Bale, Boston Herald, February 2004

Susan Marshall (Choreographer) has created 30 dance works in collaboration with the dancers of Susan Marshall & Company including One and Only You, The Most Dangerous Room in the House, Spectators at an Event, Fields of View, Arms, Interior with Seven Figures and Kiss. Marshall's collaboration with the dancers of Susan Marshall & Company has been the main influence on the development of her choreographic process and work. Marshall choreographed and directed Les Enfants Terribles in collaboration with composer Philip Glass in 1996, and has also created dances for the Lyon Opera Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet, Boston Ballet and Montreal Danse. Her signature aerial duet, Kiss, is in the current repertory of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. She has collaborated with director Francesca Zambello on operas staged for the Los Angeles Music Center and the New York City Opera. A 2000 recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Marshall has also received a Dance Magazine Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Brandeis University Creative Arts Citation and the American Choreographer Award. She has received five National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships and two New York Dance and Performance Awards (BESSIES) for Outstanding Choreographic Achievement. The first BESSIE came in 1985 following Susan Marshall & Company's premiere concert at Dance Theater Workshop, and the second came in 1997 for her collaboration with Philip Glass on Les Enfants Terribles.

Peter and Karen Lennon are the Exclusive Underwriters for Kiss.
