Among the best dance events this summer, DanceBrazil promises to stand out. The company’s infectiously enthusiastic choreography stems from artistic director Jelon Vieira's long interest in capoeira and contemporary dance, a fusion that marries the hypnotic martial art to ebullient modern movement. At the Joyce through July 3, DanceBrazil presents a program that includes the new work Malungos, a piece that Vieira named after a term used on slave ships among Africans being brought forcibly to Brazil; Vieira believes that dance itself can cement bonds of support and friendship even when we are confronted with the unthinkable.
