Traverse paradoxical worlds of raw emotion in this dazzling dance theater work by internationally acclaimed Brazilian choreographer Lia Rodrigues.
In Fúria—"fury" and "force" in Portuguese—Rodrigues travels beyond the contradictions of the ego as nine dancers bond with their primitive energies to reinvent social constructs. Exploring themes of otherness and group dynamics, she crafts a fictional universe that constantly evolves as the dancers progress from conflict and isolating individualism to jubilation and collective transcendence. The result is an invigorating experience that offers respite from numbing pandemic fatigue and the social anxiety of our time.
A driving force behind Centro de Artes da Maré, an arts center in one of Rio's largest favelas, or shantytowns, Rodrigues makes no distinction between her dance practice and the diverse community to which she is deeply committed.

Lia Rodrigues was born in São Paulo, Brazil. After studying classical ballet, she cofounded the contemporary dance group Andança and danced with Compagnie Maguy Marin. In 1990, she founded Lia Rodrigues Companhia de Danças, which has presented work in over 25 countries. The Centro de Artes da Maré, inaugurated in 2009, serves as both the headquarters for her company as well as a meeting space for artists and people of all ages. In 2005, Rodrigues won the medal of Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French government. She has been an associate artist in Paris at both the Théâtre National de Chaillot and Le 104 since 2018.
