Grupo Corpo - Sem Mim & Parabelo

7 - 8 October 2014

Brazil's internationally acclaimed dance company come to Mayflower Theatre for the first time this autumn. Grupo Corpo  combine the precision of classical ballet with the sensuality and passion of Latin dance rhythms. The 22 dancers fill the stage with elegant, virtuosic and joyful dance which has audiences in raptures.

Mayflower Theatre presents two pieces choreographed by Rodrigo Pederneiras:

Sem Mim is beautifully melancholic and is set to a 13th century Portuguese song cycle. It focuses on a group of villagers who wait anxiously on shore for the return of their fishermen. Dressed in intricately patterned bodysuits, the dancers move as waves; the ebb and flow of their bodies mimicking the calm and fury of the sea. An enormous shimmering net hangs over the stage, at times trapping the dancers in its folds.

Parabelo is inspired by life in rural Brazil. The piece was created in 1997 and features choreography full of hip swaying and feet stamping, with the dancers sweeping across the stage and moving rhythmically from group to solo and back again. It features moments of utter peace and stillness and others of raucous Brazilian carnival.

"Grupo Corpo’s dancers are justly celebrated for their virtuosity, and when 22 of them are moving in rippling, flickering, high kicking unison, the audience are guaranteed a physical thrill."   The Guardian

"Their combination of sharp precision and breezy relaxation is unlike anything I have ever seen." The Daily Telegraph

"Grupo Corpo is remarkable for the disciplined, uniform precision of its spectacular dancing, performed by virtuoso dancers who seamlessly integrate disparate influences into their ever-malleable, apparently tireless bodies."  The New York Times
