Passion lives in the Brazilian DNA. The parties, the food, the futbol—and, of course, the dance—are all lived with unbridled exuberance and undeniable energy. For more than 35 years, Grupo Corpo has channeled the Brazilian spirit, using it as a sort of mantra that inspires their passionate, cultured and memorable dance works.
With their own unique language of movement, Grupo Corpo captures the soft, sinuous form of ballet—stoked by the fiery influence of Latin American dance—and creates a smoldering, sensual experience unlike any other. The company’s physical virtuosity—with inexhaustible dancers moving to relentless rhythms—is matched only by their highly conceptual storytelling. The result is something innovative, exciting and altogether authentic. Grupo Corpo was founded in 1975 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and quickly earned a reputation for developing its own theatrical language. To date, the company has created 35 choreographies and more than 2,200 performances. Annually, Grupo Corpo maintains 10 ballets in repertoire and gives 70 performances a year in places as distinctive as Iceland and South Korea, the United States and Lebanon, Italy and Singapore, the Netherlands and Israel, France and Japan, Canada and Mexico, and now… Dallas.
