Event Details

DanceHouse proudly presents an energizing, two-part program from Brazil’s iconic contemporary dance company Grupo Corpo with the Vancouver premiere of Dança Sinfônica and Gira, February 28 & 29, 2020 at 8pm at the Vancouver Playhouse. In the company’s third presentation with DanceHouse, Grupo Corpo’s visionary siblings — Artistic Director Paulo Pederneiras and Choreographer Rodrigo Pederneiras — open the evening with Dança Sinfônica, a reflection of its 40-year history. The electrifying work draws upon an eclectic fusion of ballet, samba, jazz, Afro-Brazilian rhythms and more, in a jubilant synthesis of the juggernaut’s signature vocabulary of movement. The second half of the program will showcase the brothers’ riveting work Gira, exploring the rituals of Umbanda — one of Brazil’s most widespread religions — in a carnal meditation on humanity’s pursuit for divine enlightenment.

Tickets from $35 and more information available at dancehouse.ca or by calling 604.801.6225.
