Rising Brazilian choreographer Bruno Beltrão and his company Grupo de Rua will perform at REDCAT next week as part of The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series. The Rio de Janeiro-based Beltrão and his troupe of nine male performers infuse contemporary dance with hip-hop action.
Grupo de Rua's latest work, H3, avoids the hip-hop clichés. The dancers turn in a more nuanced performance that includes moves borrowed from modern dance, breakdancing, krumping and even hints at parkour (the sport of acrobatic obstacle running).
Here's a video that captures an excerpt from H3:
