For those who missed seeing Marciano Silva dos Santos in the lively performance of his troupe Contempo Physical Dance earlier this month, here’s another chance to witness this entrancing mover who so graciously shares the heat and vitality of dance traditions from his native Brazil with us citizens of more northern climes.

The recent dancer-turned-choreographer plans to present a new solo work “Diálogo de Raízes/Dialogue of Roots" this weekend at the James Sewell Ballet TEK Box in the Cowles Center. Dos Santos will draw upon his Afro-Brazilian dance roots to explore the experience of a man who transforms the limitations of words into seemingly limitless possibilities for physical expression. Local composer Timothy Berry will accompany the work live through an original score built around percussion.

The performance will take place on Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2 at 8 p.m., plus Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. The TEK Box is located at 528 Hennepin Avenue on the second floor of the Cowles Center. Admission is $10 and tickets are available through www.brownpapertickets.com.
