No two words more perfectly encapsulate an evening of dazzling dance than Grupo Corpo. The contemporary Brazilian company is known for its polished and remarkably disciplined precision. Company choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras’s signature style combines undulating torsos, rhythmic stamping footwork, impressive leaps and incredible athleticism. This stunning two-part program features Bach, take on Bach’s musical score, and a new creation, Gira, which showcases a powerful variety of movements inspired by spiritual celebration rituals. Did you know: On average Grupo Corpo gives 80 performances a year around the world.
