"Colorful, rhythmic and always looking forward.” Houston Chronicle
“Brazil’s leading ambassador of contemporary dance.” The Globe and Mail
With its seductive movement, scintillating music, vibrant costuming, sets and lighting, Grupo Corpo reflects the amazing diversity and rich color of Brazil. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the hugely popular dance company returns to light up the Granada stage in a program of two works, the gravity-defying piece Suíte Branca and the evocative Dança Sinfônica, featuring choreography by Cassi Abranches and Rodrigo Pederneiras. Twenty-two virtuosic dancers combine the precision of ballet with the sensuality of contemporary Afro-Brazilian movement. Writes The Guardian, “They are trained to pirouette as expertly as they samba or shimmy, and the steps seem to pour out of their sleek, supple limbs with unstoppable force.”
