NDT is the troupe where Hubbard Street Dance Artistic Director Jim Vincent danced from 1978 - 1990, and he will return as NDT's new artistic director this fall.  For their two-night only Chicago engagement, the company will perform "Shoot the Moon," choreographed by the team of Paul Lightfoot and Sol León.  Another piece to be performed in Chicago is "Wings of Wax," choreographed by Jirí Kylián (known to Chicago audiences as choreographer of Hubbard's "Sechs Tanze").  And rounding out the Chicago program is "The Second Person," choreographed by Crystal Pite, one of the hottest up-and-coming talents in modern dance.
