The Brazilian dance company combines Afro-Brazilian dance and ballet with a contemporary, highly theatrical sensibility.

  • Paulo Pederneiras – artistic director, lighting designer
  • Rodrigo Pederneiras – choreographer

Grupo Corpo Translated as “Body Group,” the highly acclaimed Brazilian ballet company is at once vigorous and urban, primordial, and metaphysical. Their work combines the sensuality of Afro-Brazilian dance forms and the technical prowess of ballet with a contemporary, highly theatrical sensibility. Grupo Corpo personifies the Brazilian ethos by bridging the natural and the cultural, the urban and the suburban and the ancient with the modern. In Sem Mim, or “without me,” dancers embark on a journey of evolution from sea to earth, their movements flowing and organic. Ima is poetry of polarities, molded by the magic that lurks in the convergent of the divergent.
