Performance Dates
Saturday, February 8, 2020 8:00pm at CENTENNIAL HALL

With its seductive movement, scintillating music, vibrant costumes, sets and lighting, international sensation Grupo Corpo makes their Tucson debut in a performance that reflects the amazing diversity and rich color of their native Brazil. This incomparable dance troop will light up Centennial Hall with a stimulating mix of street dance, ballet and contemporary Afro- Brazilian movement. Grupo Corpo’s choreographer, Rodrigo Pederneiras, has said, “I’m guided by a Brazilian way to see the life which is colorful, rhythmic and always looking forward.” He and his company use modern dance as a platform for experiencing a mix of Brazilian and other styles such as samba, capoeira, xaxado, ballet, Afro-Brazilian and ballroom dance, all while incorporating popular music in an exciting synthesis that creates something wholly new.
