Description

Brazilian dance sensation Companhia Urbana de Danša blends electrically charged athleticism and gritty urban dynamism. Founded by choreographer Sonia Destri Lie in 2005, the company fuses European hip-hop with the sounds and culture of Brazil. Companhia Urbana de Danša makes its Bay Area debut with two signature works: the Bessie Award winning ID: ENTIDADES, which explores the possibility of dialogue between hip-hop, urban traffic, and contemporary dance; and NA PISTA, which burns up the dance floor with choreography inspired by the rhythms that were part of their daily lives growing up in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.

The New York Observer describes Companhia Urbana de Danša as, "[eight] terrific guys mixing hip-hop and modern-dance moves in a totally satisfying work...hip-hop was used to an artistic end and not merely as exhibitionism, however exciting." The company's 2010 U.S. debut was ranked among Time Out New York's "Top 10" dance performances of the year.
