"Dazzling...the sensuality of samba and the technical prowess of ballet...with energy to burn."
--Boston Globe

You have a spectacular surprise coming when you see Grupo Corpo, Brazil's foremost modern dance ensemble. With unmatched visual flair and dance virtuosity, the performers of Grupo Corpo blend the spice of Afro-Brazilian dance traditions with vibrant contemporary forms built on a foundation of ballet and modern training. Contrasting hip-swaying Carnival rhythms with breathtakingly precise footwork and elegant grace, Grupo Corpo bring exuberant energy to their robust productions. The dynamic Brazilian dance theater troupe perform their recent works O Corpo and 21 for this must-see program.

Presented by the Wexner Center in association with BalletMet.
