“It is the sheer physical virtuosity of the company that is so impressive – the sinuous, athletic bodies seemingly inexhaustible.” The Guardian (U.K.)

“The virtuosic dancers of the Brazilian troupe Grupo Corpo carry fire in their veins and history in their muscles.” The Boston Globe

Brazil’s leading contemporary dance troupe Grupo Corpo returns with a phenomenal double bill of two wildly different works that showcase the 21-member group’s extraordinary range. In Gira, choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras constructs a powerful glossary of gestures of praise and movement inspired by Afro-Brazilian religious rituals, set to music by the Brazilian fusion group Méta Méta. In Bach, the baroque world of J.S. Bach is made modern in a score by Marco Antônio Guimarães, with dancers in brilliant shades of gold, regal blue and black dropping from a set of enormous organ pipes. Grupo Corpo delivers a dazzling celebration of Brazil in all its diversity.
