Founded in 1975 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, by Paulo Pederneiras, Grupo Corpo is acclaimed for its original signature: exuberant, musical, generous dance. From the success of the debut work Maria Maria to 21, from Parabelo to O Corpo, the Brazilians have conquered the world with their style, a joyous expression of the many aspects of their native land. Bach, with a score by Marco Antonio Guimarães inspired by the works of Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach, was an instant hit. The movement unfolds onstage in a seemingly uninterrupted stream, drawing dancers and audience into a subtle intoxication. Gira, the company’s latest work, combines elements of Afro-Brazilian rituals with music by Brazilian fusion group Méta Méta. Gira is an homage to belief, an offering to dance. Once again, Grupo Corpo delivers a dazzling celebration of Brazil in all its diversity. Great art.
