HUBBARD STREET DANCE COMPANY’S CASI-CASA
Call it the Dyson disco. Choreographer Mats Ek pairs dancers with vacuum cleaners to the tune of jazz, swing, and, yep, disco.
12/6–9 For its Winter Series, the progressive contemporary troupe premieres Casi-Casa, the avant-garde Swedish choreographer Mats Ek’s topsy-turvy commentary on household distress. Dancers partner with vacuum cleaners for performances set to disco, swing, and jazz. Also on the bill: the remount of Aszure Barton’s dramatic, intimate Untouched. $25–$94. Harris Theater, 205 E Randolph. hubbardstreetdance.com.
