With Contempo “every part of the body is engaged in fast-paced, fiercely athletic, hip-swiveling, counterpoint-driven propulsive movements...” - Star Tribune

Contempo Physical Dance returns to The Cowles Center with the world premiere of a new full-length work choreographed by Marciano Silva dos Santos featuring original music. Inspired by the poem O Navio Negreiro by Antonio de Castro Alves, the work will explore that which chains and bonds us together. Alves’ profound writing and vivid imagery will incite fervent and sublime explorations of the company’s dynamic fusion of Afro-Brazilian dance, capoeira and contemporary dance. The company is dedicated to contemporary dance research, the creation of vibrant new movement, and the performance of dance works that challenge human physicality and invigorate audiences.

Join us for a discussion with the artists following the February 7th performance as part of our Meet the Company: Talk-Back Series.
