counter/part
Artistic Director Jim Vincent's first choreographic work for the company was inspired by its music, Bach's Brandenburg Concerti, and features 10 dancers whose movement is a visual representation of the music.

Vincent's choreography caught the passion and drama in Bach's music…at one point, a woman borne aloft by two partners seemed to be lifted more by the zesty rhythms of the CSO's buoyant Third "Brandenburg'' allegro than her partners' strong arms.
Wynne Delacoma, Chicago Sun-Times, January 2004

It is a splendid modern ballet that grows richer, more layered and more open to interpretation with each viewing.
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times, April 2002

Jim Vincent (Artistic Director) joined HSDC in August 2000 following an extensive career as a dancer, teacher, ballet master and choreographer. Vincent's distinguished career as a professional dancer includes a 12-year tenure with Jirí Kylián's Nederlands Dans Theater, guest appearances with Lar Lubovitch and two years with Nacho Duato's Compañía Nacional de Danza in Spain. As a dancer, he worked with many choreographers, including Kylián, Duato, Lubovitch, Glen Tetley, William Forsythe, Mats Ek, Hans van Manen, Christopher Bruce and Ohad Naharin.

Vincent served as Ballet Master and Rehearsal Director for Nederlands Dans Theater II and Opéra National de Lyon and was also the Assistant Artistic Director to Nacho Duato with Compañía Nacional de Danza. Vincent has choreographed a number of works for Nederlands Dans Theater I and II and Switzerland's Stadt Theater Bern.

In 2002 Vincent choreographed counter/part for HSDC, which has been performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Maestro Pinchas Zukerman conducting, as well as with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Sir Andrew Davis conducting. Vincent's second work for the company, Uniformity, premiered at the Joyce Theater in New York City in 2005, and his newest creation, Palladio, inspired by the 16th Century Italian architect and set to composer Karl Jenkins' score, premiered in Chicago in April 2007.

Karen and Peter Lennon are the Exclusive Underwriters of counter/part.
