Companhia Urbana de Dança, NEWS

Companhia Urbana de Dança joins Endirect Artists for representation to bring their dynamic energy to audiences in North America

Founded in Brazil in 2004 by dancer Tiago Sousa and choreographer and Artistic Director Sonia Destri Lie, Companhia Urbana de Dança is an ensemble of performers working to foster the human experience through dance. Destri’s boldly original mix of contemporary Brazilian dance and hip-hop infused both forms with new rigor, meditative one moment, explosive the next. Locating the pure heart of hip-hop, Destri strips it of its easy tricks, bringing it back to its original emotional depth, expressive range, and poetic integrity.

Endirect Artists looks forward to expanding Companhia Urbana de Dança touring possibilities to new venues across North America. For all booking inquiries, please head to their artists page on our website or email us at
