DanceHouse presents Grupo Corpo
Grupo Corpo (Brazil) Dança Sinfônica & Gira
DanceHouse presents Brazil’s iconic contemporary dance company Grupo Corpo with the Vancouver premiere of Dança Sinfônica and Gira, February 28 & 29, 2020 at 8pm at the Vancouver Playhouse. In the company’s third presentation with DanceHouse, Grupo Corpo’s visionary siblings — Artistic Director Paulo Pederneiras and Choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras — present electrifying work drawing upon an eclectic fusion of ballet, samba, jazz, Afro-Brazilian rhythms and more. The second half of the program will showcase the brothers’ riveting work Gira, exploring the rituals of Umbanda — one of Brazil’s most widespread religions — in a carnal meditation on humanity’s pursuit for divine enlightenment.
