Rounding out their exciting 2011/12 season tomorrow, dance organization White Bird offers you this:
The hip-hop troupe Compagnie Käfig. Hailing from France and Brazil—their choreographer is based in Lyon, and its 10 young dancers from Rio de Janeiro—choreographer Mourad Merzouki will present two pieces, Agwa and Correria, for a mix of acrobatics, samba, electronic, and, cups of water?
There aren’t many chances to see hip-hop dance in Portland, and this is Compagnie Käfig’s only U.S. stop on their current tour, making Wednesday's show an especially unique opportunity. Tickets for the performance are $25-60, BUT we have a hook-up: enter in the discount code Mercury when you check out, here, and get $5 off tickets in price levels 2-4. Notables from earlier in the Uncaged season included vigorous, intense performances from the local group tEEth and the Canadian troupe Kidd Pivot; Compagnie Käfig seems to be more of the same type of impressive talent.
Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1031 SW Broadway, May 9, 7:30 pm, $25-60.
