Companhia Urbana de Dança is firmly positioned in the leading urban dance scene in Brazil and internationally, and choreographer Sonia Destri Lie’s boldly original mix of contemporary Brazilian dance and hip-hop infuses both forms with new rigor. Meditative one moment, explosive the next, Destri approach strips the genre of its easy tricks, finding its original emotional depth, expressive range, and poetic integrity with a unique Brazilian sensibility. Pulling from the peripheral communities of Rio de Janeiro where many of her company members grew up, Companhia Urbana de Dança aims to transcend cultural boundaries, redefining the world favela in the psyche of Brazil and the world by making their dance and their daily work a socio-political—and aesthetic—response to their environment.
While in Sarasota, the company will offer a masterclass to the community, and work with Booker High School dance students.
