About this show

Applauded for its "high-octane, high-flying" (The New York Times) fusion of African dance forms, modern dance and capoeira, the company performs Dance like a Fight - Fight like a Dance, a sensuous, fast-paced new work by Artistic Director Jelon Vieira that draws upon the ongoing dialogue of a capoeira roda, (the circle where capoeira lives). Also on the program--the revival of last season's hit Batuke, a hard-driving piece exploding with the rhythms created by smooth samba steps, capoeira lethal kicks, and the stick dance Maculelé.
