Brazil's Grupo Corpo heats things up with a winter performance of effortless movement and overflowing creativity. The highly sought after contemporary company was founded by Paulo Pederneiras in 1975, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and debuted its first work, Maria Maria, the very next year. Featuring original music by Milton Nascimento, a script by Fernando Brandt and choreography by the Argentine Oscar Araiz, the ballet would go on to spend six years on stage and tour fourteen countries. Since then, the company has intensified its international touring and created more than 2,300 pieces, as well as ten full ballets in its repertoire. Most recently they performed as part of the opening ceremony during the 2016 Summer Olympics exhibiting their unique fusion of movement styles. Giving more than 80 performances a year in places as distinctive as Iceland and South Korea, the United States and Lebanon, Canada, Italy, Singapore, the Netherlands, Israel, France, Japan and Mexico, Grupo Corpo has become one of the most desired companies in the world! After ten years of anticipation, DANCECleveland is thrilled to bring them to Cleveland for two stellar performances!
