About the Event

Dança Sinfônica

Straight from the Rio Olympics Closing Ceremony to the Northrop stage! Passion, power, and Brazilian rhythms burst forth as Grupo Corpo takes the Northrop stage for our season opener. A favorite of local and international audiences alike, the company brings us two works that showcase their seductive appeal. Created in 2015 in celebration of their 40th anniversary, Dança Sinfônica is a breathtaking homage to the wide range of Grupo Corpo’s repertoire. With a backdrop of more than a thousand photographs from the company’s storied past, this spirited piece floats on a symphonic score combining evocative original works with classical favorites. The dancers’ stunning physicality and dynamic ability are on full display as they defy the laws of gravity in Parabelo, a work that combines exuberant hip swaying and foot stomping, and an explosive, energetic finale.

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