Why See Grupo Corpo?
beautiful Brazilian dance and music
Founded in 1975 by brothers Rodrigo Paulo and Pedro Pederneiras in the city of Belo Horizonte, Grupo Corpo (literally "Body Group") and their work are a true melting pot of cultural and artistic influences. Their compelling style grafts the pliancy of modern dance and rhythmic complexity of Afro-Brazilian dance onto ballet, captivating audiences with stunningly sexy physicality, dynamic ability, and rich visual finesse.\
With joy emanating from every fibre of their being, the dancers of Grupo Corpo inhabit the rhythms, multiple melodies and pulses of their neo-classical-modern-dance-hybrid, sometimes undulating like waves, sometimes hopping, bouncing, crawling and swirling around the voluptuousness of samba. Drawing inspiration from a variety of different cultures and backgrounds, the company's energy is boundless and virtuosity simply stunning to behold.
