Tradition
Builds
the
Future

FA L L 2 0 1 5

In our 137th season, we continue to showcase traditional performances
alongside contemporary artists for an offering that is unlike anything
available in the Midwest. UMS grew from a group of local members of the
University and townspeople in the 1870s who gathered together for the
study of Handel’s Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and
conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The
Choral Union. Many Choral Union members were also affiliated with the
University, and the University Musical Society was established soon after in
December 1880.
Since that first season, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the
very best from a wide spectrum of the performing arts: internationally
renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz
and global music performers, and contemporary stagework and classical
theater. Through educational programming, the commissioning of new
works, youth programs, artist residencies, and collaborative projects, we
continue to strengthen our reputation for artistic distinction and innovation.

“The arts have made a significant difference in my life and
my daughter’s life. I want every U-M student to have the
opportunity to experience the impact of the performing arts
at UMS. This is why I am offering every first and second year
student one free ticket — Bert’s Ticket — to introduce them to
a cultural experience at Michigan.”

DAL L AS AN D SH ARON DORT
“It could almost be said that we chose to move to Ann Arbor
post-career because of UMS. Who wouldn’t want to live in a
city that can attract such talent, and fill a 3,500-seat hall with
so many enthusiastic audiences? Now, we enjoy each season
all the more because, as donors, we’re an active part of UMS.
What a privilege!”

“As students, we benefited from low-cost student tickets,
fostering a lifelong love of the performing arts. Our donation

WHY RENEGADE?
Both in dance and the visual arts,
William Forsythe is internationally
recognized for his dynamic, creative
voice. Over the course of his career, he
has challenged preconceptions about
ballet and extended ballet’s reach
into the 21st century by introducing
contemporary ideas into this classical
art form. While the works we see
tonight are created for a proscenium
stage, Mr. Forsythe has not limited his
innovation in dance to the traditional
theater. He once noted, “choreography
is about organizing bodies in space,”
an approach which has sparked his
creations in film and video, for webbased projects, plus countless siteresponsive installations, all bringing
scientific and artmaking strategies
deeply within his dance practice.
William Forsythe is a central force
behind changing the way ballet looks
and how we think about it today.

N.N.N.N. appears as a mind in four parts; four dancers in a state of constant,
tacit connection. Underscored by the sudden murmured flashes of Thom
Willems’ music, these dancers enter into a complex, intense inscription.
Their arms, heads, bodies, and legs become singular voices, each tuned and
in counterpoint to the other. These performers write out a text of the voice
of the body, slowly, then more and more rapidly, coalescing over and over
into a linked entity of flinging arms, folding joints, and a sharp, high sense of
time. Hubbard Street is honored to be the first US dance company to perform
William Forsythe’s N.N.N.N., restaged by original cast members Cyril Baldy
and Amancio Gonzalez in fall 2015.

N.N.N.N. is approximately 20 minutes in duration.
Created for and premiered by Ballett Frankfurt on November 21, 2002 at the Opernhaus, Frankfurt am

Technical Consultant / Tanja Rühl

Hubbard Street was honored to be the first US dance company to perform
William Forsythe’s Quintett. Original cast members Thomas McManus,
Dana Caspersen, and Stephen Galloway restaged Forsythe’s landmark 1993
choreography in Hubbard Street’s Chicago studios in 2012.
Quintett’s seamless progression of solos, duets, and trios for five dancers
runs in concert with — and counter to — themes of loss, hope, fear, and joy
heard in Gavin Bryars’ orchestral composition from 1971, Jesus’ Blood Never
Failed Me Yet. Exemplary of the many works created by Forsythe as artistic
director of Germany’s Ballett Frankfurt from 1984 to 2004, Quintett explores
the strictures of classical ballet by testing their resilience to manipulation,
torsion, and fragmentation.

Quinett is approximately 26 minutes in duration.
Created for and premiered by Ballett Frankfurt on October 9, 1993 at the Opernhaus, Frankfurt am Main,
Germany. First performed by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance,
May 31, 2012. Technical support provided by the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. Music by Gavin
Bryars: Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet, as recorded by Schott Music GmbH & Co. KG, Mainz. Quintett is
sponsored by Meg and Tim Callahan, Denise Stefan Ginascol and John Ginascol, Sarah J. Nolan and Randy
and Lisa White. The Julius N. Frankel Foundation is the Lead Foundation Sponsor of Quintett.

One Flat Thing, reproduced begins with a roar: 20 tables, like jagged rafts
of ice, fly forward and become the surface, the underground, and the sky
inhabited by a ferocious flight of dancers. This pack of bodies rages with
alacrity, whipping razor-like in perilous waves. Its score, by composer and
longtime Forsythe collaborator Thom Willems, begins quietly before becoming
a gale, gathering sonic force as the dancers’ bodies produce a voracious and
detailed storm of movement.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s core
purpose is to bring artists, art, and
audiences together to enrich, engage,
educate, transform, and change lives
through the experience of dance.
Celebrating Season 38 in 2015–16,
under the artistic leadership of Glenn

—William Forsythe

After a performing career that included
roles in Broadway musicals such as
Cabaret, Mame, and How to Succeed in
Business Without Really Trying, Lou
Conte (founder) established the Lou
Conte Dance Studio in 1974. Three years
later, he founded what is now Hubbard
Street Dance Chicago. Originally the
company’s sole choreographer, he
developed relationships with emerging
and world-renowned dancemakers Lynne
Taylor-Corbett, Margo Sappington, and
Daniel Ezralow as the company grew. Mr.
Conte continued to build Hubbard Street’s
repertoire by forging a key relationship
with Twyla Tharp in the 1990s, acquiring
seven of her works as well as original
choreography. It then became an
international enterprise with the inclusion
of works by Jiří Kylián, Nacho Duato, and
Ohad Naharin. Throughout his 23 years as
the company’s artistic director, Mr. Conte
received numerous awards including the
first Ruth Page Artistic Achievements
Award in 1986, the Sidney R. Yates Arts
Advocacy Award in 1995, and a Chicagoan

of the Year award from Chicago magazine
in 1999. In 2003, Mr. Conte was inducted
as a laureate into the Lincoln Academy
of Illinois, the state’s highest honor, and
in 2014 was named one of five inaugural
recipients of the City of Chicago’s Fifth
Star Award. He has been credited by many
for helping raise Chicago’s international
cultural profile and for creating a
welcoming climate for dance in the city,
where the art form now thrives.

U-M student Meri Bobber was placed in an internship with Hubbard Street
Dance Chicago this summer as part of UMS’s 21st Century Artist Internship
program. We share her photos and experiences at UMSLobby.org.

After the closure of Ballett Frankfurt
in 2004, Forsythe established a new, more
independent ensemble. The Forsythe
Company, founded with the support of
the German states of Saxony and Hesse,
the cities of Dresden and Frankfurt am
Main, and private sponsors, is based in
Dresden and Frankfurt am Main and
maintains an extensive, international
touring schedule. Works produced by the
new ensemble include Three Atmospheric
Studies (2005), You made me a monster
(2005), Human Writes (2005), Heterotopia
(2006), The Defenders (2007), Yes we can’t
(2008/10), I don’t believe in outer space
(2008), The Returns (2009), and Sider
(2011). Mr. Forsythe’s most recent works
are developed and performed exclusively
by The Forsythe Company, while his
earlier pieces are prominently featured
in the repertoires of virtually every major
ballet company in the world, including the
12

Mariinsky Ballet, New York City Ballet,
San Francisco Ballet, the National Ballet
of Canada, London’s Royal Ballet, and the
Paris Opéra Ballet.
Awards received by Mr. Forsythe and his
ensembles include four New York Dance
and Performance “Bessie” Awards (1988,
1998, 2004, 2007) and three Laurence
Olivier Awards in the U.K. (1992, 1999,
2009). Mr. Forsythe has been conveyed the
title of “Commandeur des Arts et Lettres”
(1999) by the government of France and

Service Cross (1997), the Wexner Prize
(2002), the Golden Lion of the Venice
Biennale (2010), the Samuel H Scripps
/ American Dance Festival Award for
Lifetime Achievement (2012), and the
Swedish Carina Ari Medal (2014).
Mr. Forsythe has been commissioned to
produce architectural and performance
installations by architect-artist Daniel
Libeskind (Groningen, 1989), ARTANGEL
(London, 1997), Creative Time (New

Forsythe calls his installations — include
among others White Bouncy Castle (1997),
City of Abstracts (2000), The Fact of
Matter (2009), Everywhere and Nowhere

Biennale (2005, 2009, 2012, 2014).
In collaboration with media specialists
and educators, Mr. Forsythe has
developed new approaches to dance
documentation, research, and education.
His 1994 computer application
Improvisation Technologies: A Tool for
the Analytical Dance Eye, developed
with the Zentrum für Kunst und
Medientechnologie Karlsruhe (ZKM), is
used as a teaching tool by professional
companies, dance conservatories,
universities, postgraduate architecture
programs, and secondary schools
worldwide. 2009 marked the launch
of “Synchronous Objects for One Flat
Thing, reproduced,” a digital online score
developed with the Ohio State University
revealing the organizational principles
of the choreography and demonstrating
potential applications within other
disciplines. “Synchronous Objects” was
the pilot project for Mr. Forsythe’s
Motion Bank, a research platform
focused on the creation and research
of online digital scores in collaboration
with guest choreographers.
