"Brazil's leading ambassadors of contemporary dance...showing off the superb skills of the dancers, arguably the best on the planet." —Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Order the best seats early for this electrifying Brazilian dance company, noted for its stunningly sexy physicality, dynamic virtuosity, and rich visual flair. Grupo Corpo creates a vibrant and seamless blend of ballet's grace, modern dance's verve, and the hip-swiveling exuberance of Carnival sambas and their Afro-Brazilian roots. You'll see the U.S. premiere of the ensemble's newest work, which is set to the music of Lenine, a Brazilian singing sensation. Founded in 1975 and now led by choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras, Grupo Corpo won raves with its Columbus debut at the Wexner Center in 2002. Don't miss this chance to experience its "striking power and originality," "impeccable delivery," and "searing sensuality elegantly under control" (Le Monde, Paris).
Presented by the Wexner Center in association with BalletMet Columbus.
