An intoxicating cocktail of unbridled passion, pure energy and athletic skill—Companhia Urbana de Dança is an all-male Brazilian troupe that specializes in contemporary dance and hip-hop. Under the direction of choreographer Sonia Destri, the company makes its West Coast debut at Carpenter Center. The New York Times describes Destri’s aesthetic as “out of the ordinary. She dissected hip-hop…to show how the dance form…could enter into the realm of art!”
