Grupo Corpo - Bach + Gira


January 23 to 26, 2019

Downtown - Quartier des spectacles

Founded in 1975 by Paulo Pederneiras, Grupo Corpo is acclaimed for its original signature: exuberant, musical, generous dance. The Brazilians have conquered the world with their style, a joyous expression of the many aspects of their native land.

Bach, with a score by Marco Antonio Guimarães inspired by the works of Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach, was an instant hit. The movement unfolds onstage in a seemingly uninterrupted stream, drawing dancers and audience into a subtle intoxication.

Gira, the company’s latest work, combines elements of Afro-Brazilian rituals with music by Brazilian fusion group Méta Méta. Gira is an homage to belief, an offering to dance.

Once again, Grupo Corpo delivers a dazzling celebration of Brazil in all its diversity. Great art.
