When procuring performers for her contemporary dance company, choreographer Sonia Destri Lie looked beyond conventional repertory dance school walls. Venturing into the rough areas of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the artistic director tapped into the city’s vibrant street dance culture to assemble the top-notch troupe Companhia Urbana de Dança. The company’s nine young members combine artistry and athleticism in spirited performances, blending bits of their personal experiences with street, hip-hop, samba, capoeira and contemporary styles. Two signature works, “I. You. We … All black!” and “Na Pista,” address issues of race, identity and culture through what the San Francisco Chronicle calls “a marvel of gritty, physical energy.”
