Freely mixing urban street styles, social dances, and thought-provoking contemporary vocabulary, the audacious and dynamic Companhia Urbana de Dança unleashes startlingly new forms for a truly moving experience. Composed of eight immensely talented young men from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro on their first US tour, this poetic and explosive company stuns with stamina-testing solos and jaw-dropping group movement that defies the limits of physicality while retaining choreographic rigor. Alternately mesmerizing and rippling with adrenaline and raw energy, these two works conceived and choreographed by director Sonia Destri Lie explore the cultural roots of Brazil and the gritty life stories of the dancers themselves.
