Performance | Global Dance Connections series

Focus Cia De Dança

Founded in Rio de Janeiro in 2000 by Brazilian choreographer Alex Neoral, Focus Cia De Dança has found huge audience success at home and abroad with its surging physicality and poetic depth. Neoral’s artistic approach is rooted in Brazilian tradition but is fiercely modern, blending ballet and contemporary techniques. Still Reich comprises four dynamic works choreographed to the propulsive music of the iconic American composer Steve Reich. Pathways is built on intricate duets; Trilas explores how everything can change in a moment; Wood Steps is inspired by nomadic life; and Keta shows the dancers working at maximum power and velocity. Packed with complex partnering and sculpted shapes, the fluent choreography drives a celebration of movement, sound, and rhythm.
