"This Grupo Corpo performance is a ritual of homage to energy, youth and the beauty of the human body, the interplay of the genders, the interaction of light, music and gesture." MusicWeb

  • Grupo Corpo, or 'Body Group', is a Brazilian Dance Company who combines the sensuality of Afro-Brazilian dance forms and the technical prowess of ballet with a contemporary, highly theatrical sensibility.


  • Blending Brazilian spirit with African rhythms and elements of classical ballet, the group has become Brazil's leading ballet company. Innovative lighting and scenery, and vivid costumes all add to the experience.


  • O Corpo - Choreographed in 2000, this piece is set to an original score by Arnaldo Antunes. The dance combines highly technical dance moves with a sharp edgy, urban flair. The piece shows the versatility of their dancers and their incredible competence in manipulating the entire body.


  • This disc has been re-packaged and re-released for 2006 in worldwide NTSC format.
