Hubbard Street’s Season Opens With Chagall-Inspired Dance

IT ALWAYS comes back to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, when you talk about the Art Institute of Chicago, and credit to John Hughes for making those images iconic enough so that all someone has to say is “Remember that scene where Ferris and Sloane kissed while Cameron was staring at that big pointillist painting?” and WHAM there it is in your mind, that big piece of blue Mark Chagall glass with a couple of Eighties icons swabbing tonsils in front of it. Anyway, you do remember that scene, right? Or maybe you just know the work anyway. It’s called “America Windows,” and it’s at the AIC, and this year Hubbard Street Dance is kicking off its season with a piece choreographed by Alejandro Cerrudo, set to music by Philip Glass, directly inspired by the Chagall window.
