Companhia Urbana de Dança sees the power in possibilities…the intense energy that collects in the calm before the storm. Directed by Sonia Destri, this Brazilian dance group with roots in hip-hop, urban and contemporary dance consists of eight young dancers from the suburbs and favelas of Rio de Janeiro. With ID:ENTIDADES and the American Premiere of Chapa Quente, audiences will witness the next evolution of urban dance. Incorporating Brazil’s cultural roots and the gritty real-world experiences of her dancers, Destri’s new choreographic language turns away from hip-hop’s grandstanding aspects toward something mysterious and richly complex. Named as one of Time Out New York’s “Top Ten” dance programs of the past year, the electric talents of Sonia Destri and her dancers have attracted a rapidly growing fan base the world over.
