Cia Suave
Choreography by Alice Ripoll

“a jump from any street on the outskirts of the stage of contemporary dance, reinventing it.”
—Publico (Portugal)

Cria is the embodiment of youth. Taking the movement vocabularies of dancinha, a hot mix of funk, samba, and breakdance, and passinho, the life force of favela culture, choreographer Alice Ripoll relocates the wild exuberance of adolescence through dance. This fall, Ripoll and the astonishingly talented, 10-member group Suave—an all-Black company of cis and trans performers, each bringing their own individual narrative, dance history, and physicality to the stage—make their thrilling US debut.
