H3 - there's never the snapping when you want it Jan 29, 2010

'It's about the movement in relation to the space not just the movement for movement's sake.' That was what my friend Josh said after several conversations we had about Bruno Beltrao's H3. I liked the group better than the parts, I never let go of the sound of the sneakers on the marley and I desperately wanted them to go into a West Side Story snapping bit, but alas twas not to be. I was intrigued, confused and had I not just seen several performances of the dance troupe 'Groovaloo' in New York City recently, I would have felt very differently about this piece.

Nine Men! Grupo de Rua's H3 Opens tomorrow Jan 27, 2010

It's been quite a season at On the Boards this year, and this month has been jam packed so far with some awesome dance. Starting with Olivier Wevers' Whim W'him and the group's sold-out showings of 3 Seasons a couple weeks ago, this week brings dance from the other end of the dance spectrum (and also, other end of the world) with Brazilian chorographer Bruno Beltrão and Grupo de Rua's H3.
