Grupo Corpo: Bach & Gira

“It is the sheer physical virtuosity of the company that is so impressive — the sinuous, athletic bodies seemingly inexhaustible.” (The Guardian, London)

The phenomenal Brazilian dance company Grupo Corpo makes its third UMS appearance with a double bill of Bach and Gira, two wildly different works that showcase the 21-member group’s extraordinary range. In Gira, choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras constructs a powerful glossary of gestures of praise and movement inspired by Afro-Brazilian religious rituals, set to music by the Brazilian fusion group Méta Méta. In Bach, the baroque world of Johann Sebastian Bach is made modern in a score by Marco Antônio Guimarães, with dancers in brilliant shades of gold, regal blue, and black dropping from a set of enormous organ pipes. Grupo Corpo delivers a dazzling celebration of Brazil in all its diversity.
