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.

Bruno Beltrão’s power-packed dance company, Grupo de Rua de Niterói, injects a new urban energy into Brazil and beyond.
