With its seductive movement, adventurous music, vibrant costuming, sets, and lighting, Grupo Corpo reflects the diversity and rich color of Brazil. This world-renowned dance company brings its incomparable mix of ballet and contemporary Afro-Brazilian movement back to the Bass Concert Hall stage with new works by Rodrigo Pederneiras.

Founded in 1975, Grupo Corpo (literally “Body Group�) and their work are a true melting pot of cultural and artistic influences. Their captivating style grafts the flexibility of modern dance and rhythmic complexity of Afro-Brazilian dance onto ballet, captivating audiences with stunningly sexy physicality, dynamic ability, and rich visual finesse.

“Grupo Corpo’s dancers are justly celebrated for their virtuosity, and when 22 of them are moving in rippling, flickering, high-kicking unison, the audience are guaranteed a physical thrill.� — The Guardian
