ArtesAméricas Performance

By popular demand, Texas Performing Arts presents the two-evening return of Brazil’s world-renowned dance company, Grupo Corpo. If you witnessed their 2009 performance at Bass Concert Hall, you can attest to the passion, beauty, and originality of this company.

Founded in 1975 by brothers Rodrigo (Choreographer), Paulo (Artistic Director), and Pedro (Technical Director) 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.

For this Austin engagement, Grupo Corpo’s selections include music by + 2 (Moreno, Domenico, Kassin) and Carlos Núñes and José Miguel Wisnik (based on works by Martín Codax).
