SF/LB
Choreographic sensation Ezralow creates an innovative work for 15 dancers that explores the very essence of movement. By using childlike jumps and pushing the limits of speed, SF/LB provokes a visceral reaction among audiences. The piece is set to a score by Leonard Bernstein and creates a provocative statement about the unity and conformity of modern society.

Let's not equivocate. With the world premiere of choreographer Daniel Ezralow's high-propulsion classical jazz ballet "SF/LB," Hubbard Street has a smash hit on its hands….a piece that explodes with all the confidence and pulsating energy of mid-20th century America.
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times, November 2004

"SF/LB" exploded across the stage like a string of ingeniously timed firecrackers.
John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, November 2004

Daniel Ezralow (Choreographer) created SUPER STRAIGHT is coming down, READ MY HIPS, In Praise of Shadows and Lady Lost Found for HSDC. A native of Los Angeles Ezralow began dancing while at UC Berkeley and in New York with Lar Lubovitch, Paul Taylor and Pilobolus. He was one of the original dancer-choreographers of MOMIX, a founding member of ISO Dance and has created original works for the Paris Opera Ballet and Batsheva among many others. Ezralow choreographed Julie Taymor's The Green Bird, on Broadway, Ron Howard's film The Grinch and 1998 Academy Awards and 2000 Grammy Awards for television. He has created music videos for Andrea Boccelli, U2, David Bowie, Sting and Ricky Martin. Ezralow has received The A.C.A. Innovators Award, and an Emmy Award for the PBS special Episodes. He conceived and choreographed the award-winning dance special Windows, shown on BRAVO, and is the subject of a new feature documentary film, exploring his solo multimedia show MANDALA. Most recently Ezralow co-created and staged the PBS Great Performances special Josh Groban In Concert shown nationally and directed the MTV for the Josh Groban song, "Gira Con Me Questa Notte."

SF/LB is exclusively underwritten by Meg and Tim Callahan in celebration of Meg's 50th birthday.
