On Feb. 4, Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts brings DanceBrazil to Brooklyn College for the New York premiere of "Retratos da Bahia," an evening-length work inspired by French photographer and anthropologist Pierre Verger.

Verger’s book of the same title documented the culture of Bahia, the northeastern state that’s home to the largest number of Brazilians of African descent - as well as the troupe’s own dancers and musicians. The score of "Retratos da Bahia" weaves the Afro-Brazilian roots of traditional Bahian music, such as call-and-response songs, with pop music.

Tickets for DanceBrazil are $15-$35. "Retratos da Bahia" will be performed on Feb. 4 at 8 pm at the Walt Whitman Theater, located on the Brooklyn College campus (one block from the junction of Flatbush and Nostrand avenues in Midwood). For tickets and information, call (718) 951-4500 or visit the Web site at
