DANCE PROGRAM

Companhia Urbana de Dança Residency: November 6, 2014 to November 8, 2014 Virtuosic dancers from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro fuse hip-hop, samba, capoeira, and contemporary dance in the boldly imaginative choreography of Sonia Destri Lie’s Companhia Urbana de Dança, one of the most exciting new ensembles on the world stage. “The seven young men and one woman in this Brazilian hip- hop group are almost shocking in their individuality and physicality” (Dance Magazine). Destri Lie deconstructs the thrilling kinetic expressions of street dance and shapes them into theatrical tableaux. “Classic hip-hop moves are visible — the rippling of arms, the rolling on backs — yet they have been stretched and shaped into something new” (New York Times). Companhia Urbana de Dança elicit a sense of euphoria wherever they perform; the San Francisco Chronicle raved that “this troupe from Brazil is an absolute marvel of gritty physical energy.” Masterclass: Hip-Hop with Companhia Urbana de Danca, Wednesday, November 5, 2014 10:05am, Hull Studio Masterclass with Companhia Urbana de Danca, Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 3:05pm, the Ark Panel: Companhia Urbana de Danca: Aesthetics & Activism in Brazilian Dance, Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 12:00pm, Ark Companhia Urbana de Dança Open Rehearsal, Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 8:00-9:00pm, Reynolds Theater
