Now Playing Onstage in Columbus - Week of 2/23/2014 COMPANHIA URBANA DE DANÇA EU DANÇO-8 SOLOS NO GERAL
Riffe Center Capitol Theatre
2/28-2/28/2014
Don't miss this sensational dance event, a major highlight of the Wexner Center's cross-disciplinary focus on the best new artists of Brazil today. Leading Brazilian choreographer Sonia Destri Lie worked in ballet, theatre, musicals, and film before falling in love with the vibrant street dance styles of Rio de Janeiro. She founded Companhia Urbana de Danca in 2004, combining her contemporary dance aesthetics with the explosive hip-hop athleticism she found in that city's favelas, where she discovered the dynamic group of dancers featured in this now-acclaimed ensemble. Companhia Urbana de Danca will perform the US premiere of their recent full-evening work Eu danco-8 solos no geral. This title, which translates as "I Dance, 8 Solos Overall," is a declaration of each company member's pride in their own identity as a dancer, as well as a promise to contribute their individual skills to the overall impact of the group. As the New York Times noted of Destri Lie, "She dissected hip-hop and dismantled its trickery…to show how the dance form…could enter into the realm of art. Yet even though this is a company of soloists, the work exhibits an all-for-one mentality…the reason is Ms. Destri. The men can dance, but they are also lucky: she is their eye."

Now Playing Onstage in Columbus - Week of 2/23/2014 DAVID AND LISA
Weathervane Playhouse
2/28-3/16/2014
David and Lisa is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet set in the world of those labeled as less-than-perfect. When the film version was released in 1962, David and Lisa was widely acknowledged as one of the beacons of the new American independent film movement. The script illuminated the world of those labeled with mental illness with a compassionate view and optimistic outcome. The stage version holds true to the original film, telling an uplifting story about two people held back by disorder and social labels who ultimately choose bravely to overcome these challenges.
