What I saw last night. DanceBrazil at the Joyce Theater. IMG_4093The first dance was performed to live music by several men and two women. Apparently about an arid place with a short rainy season the dancers squatted on a stage bathed in red light and looked imploringly to the heavens. Eventually they get their wish and move more animatedly. The second piece was about some fortune telling game in Brazil and had low key recorded music and slow movement. The final piece seemed to be their updated version of West Side Story with hands raised or behind the back while police sirens shrieked and then Capoeira dancing away.

Elements: live music
Titles: “Fé do Sertão”  “Búzios”  “Gueto”
