Featured: The Lia Rodrigues Companhia de Danças (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

The Lia Rodrigues Companhia de Danças was founded in 1990, by the choreographer Lia Rodrigues, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The company has built a solid reputation and has been invited to perform its repertoire in important festivals and dance institutions around Brasil and foreign countries. Besides its artistic productions the company gives classes, conferences and workshops toward beginners and professional dancers.

In Brasil, the performances are always for free or have low tickets prices. Some of the actions taken by the company are to offer spaces for debate, make other individuals aware of questions relating to contemporary art, in addition to investing in the formation of new audiences. The Company is based, since 2003, in the favela of Maré ( one of the biggest favelas in Rio de Janeiro ) where the company develops an artistic and educational project.
