A White Bird Favorite, Grupo Corpo is back!
The premier contemporary Brazilian dance company is back to Portland with two incredible works, Suíte Branca (2015) and Dança Sinfônica (2015). Continuing beyond forty years of dance, Grupo Corpo’s colorful, athletic and agile performance are a synthesis of modern dance with ballet, samba, capoera, and xaxado dancing. Integral to each creation, each component of production (dance, music, lighting, costume, stage setting) defines the piece and has set the scene for performing arts worldwide. Director/lighting designer Paulo Pederneiras, choreographer Roberto Pederneiras and technical director Pedro Pederneiras are brothers, making Grupo Corpo a family affair.
