Grupo Corpo (Brazil)

'Grupo Corpo’s unashamed mission seems to be to tempt the rhythm of life out of us all' - The Guardian (UK).

19 lycra-clad bodies flow, melt and crash together in this sizzling double bill from celebrated Brazilian dance company Grupo Corpo.

Passion is something that is built into the Brazilian DNA. Their parties, their football, their dance - all are executed with an unbridled exuberance and energy. For over 35 years Grupo Corpo has followed this mantra, producing impassioned works of dance that draw from the country’s rich culture and history.

In their first visit to New Zealand, the company presents a back-to-back performance featuring two of their most recognisable dance works: Parabelo and Onqotô.

Parabelo has a distinctive carnival feel, with bright colours moving to the rhythm of sashaying hips and lithe limbs. Onqotô with its fast footwork and dynamic Brazilian beats, examines the attraction and repulsion of opposites. Set to a soundtrack by Caetano Veloso and others, it is vigorous and physical, elegant and engaging.

With all the grace and form of ballet stirred with the fire of Latin American dance, this is a fiesta of a performance, fresh from the stages of Europe, South America and the United States.

Sponsored by Wellington International Airport.

Presented by arrangement with Arts Projects Australia.
