Lickety-Split
Hubbard Street dancer Alejandro Cerrudo combines sensual and fluid movement with playful and quirky gestures in Lickey-Split. Danced by three couples enveloped in the unpredictable layers of love, Lickety-Split is a contemporary work moved by the sounds of renowned Bay Area songwriter Devendra Banhart.

Not only has Cerrudo devised a complete, self-contained, highly original, slinky-meets-sensual language of dance and gesture for his rapid-fire work, but he has demonstrated an unusually sophisticated sense of patterning in his deployment of its three couples.
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times, September 2006

…inventive… whimsical…infectious… splashed with impish quirks and gentle humor.
Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune, September 2006

Alejandro Cerrudo (HSDC Dancer and Choreographer) received his training at the Real Conservatario Professional de Danza de Madrid. After joining the Stuttgart Ballet in 1999, he choreographed his first piece, Beige and Brown, which was performed at their annual Noverre's Association Workshop in 2000. He went on to create two more works that were also performed at the Stuttgart, as well as pieces for the Sphaera Organization and the 5th International Ballet and Modern Dance Competition in Nagoya, Japan; two of which, Short Cut To My Friend and I Make You Obvious, were awarded bronze medals in 2005. In 2006, Cerrudo choreographed Fuel for the 20th International Choreographic Competition for Young Choreographers in Hanover, Germany, and received third prize for his work. He joined HSDC in August 2005, and created his first work for the company, Come True, as part of the 2006 Choreographic Workshop, "Inside/Out". He developed this piece further, leading to the world premiere of Lickety-Split, as part of the 2006 Fall Series.

Lickety-Split is sponsored by John and Caroline Ballantine and Joel and Katie Cory.
