Companhia Urbana de Dança:

ID: Entidades & Na Pista

“So wonderful that it seems miraculous...promised a blend of hip-hop, urban and contemporary dance and knocked the ball out of the park.”The New York Times

"Forget the pedigree. For raw, edge-of-your-seat tension, this is the one to beat." —San Francisco Chronicle

"Tour de force of hip-hop dance-theatre." —Financial Times

Presented as part of the Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

The audacious, vigorous, and highly inventive Brazilian dance ensemble Companhia Urbana de Dança is renowned for burning up the stage in an irresistible explosion of breakneck bravado, exuberant, high-speed energy, and powerhouse athleticism. Choreographer Sonia Destri Lie and the performers deconstruct the thrilling kinetics of Rio de Janeiro street dance, seamlessly fusing together hip-hop,  samba, capoeira, and contemporary forms. Their signature work ID: Entidades, inspired by the life stories of the company dancers, pulses with raw adrenaline to a high-voltage score by Brazilian composer Rodrigo Marçal. They also explore the joyful influence of pop culture and sizzling social dance in the critically-praised Na Pista, which prompted The New York Times to write that the company “is so wonderful that it seems miraculous.”
