Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Combining the sensuality of Afro-Brazilian dance forms with the technical prowess of ballet, Brazil’s leading contemporary dance company, Grupo Corpo, returns to Meany with two wildly different works, both Seattle premieres. In Bach, choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras renders the baroque beautifully modern, unveiling an intoxicating game between what is heard and what is seen. With Gira, he delves into the religious traditions of his homeland with rich poetic imagery animated by gestures of praise and worship.

Please note: this performance contains partial nudity.

It is the sheer physical virtuosity of the company that is so impressive — the sinuous, athletic bodies seemingly inexhaustible.
