Este conjunto de dança extraordinariamente famoso de Minas Gerais apresentou-se
no mundo inteiro-para se transformar num dos representantes mais expressivos
e ativos da estética brasileira. A companhia personifica a diversidade
cultural brasileira para unir os elementos do balé clássico e
da dança moderna para criar "uma mescla picante e fervilhante das
influências africanas, árabes e européias no Brasil"
(The Times, Londres). O Grupo Corpo apresentará no Kennedy Center
o ritualístico e inspirador Parabello, juntamente com as voluptuosoas
e originais Sete ou Oito Peças para Balé, pondo de destaque a
hipnótica música de Philip Glass.
Mãe Gentil Brasil For 500 years, Portuguese, indigenous, and African peoples have mixed in Brazil to create a cultural richness as profound as the natural wealth of this large land. It’s a land, which its inhabitants affectionately refer to as “Gentle Mother (Mãe Gentil),” where musical, theater, and dance forms from three continents butt up against each other, creating a vibrancy and energy all its own. From this diverse mix come samba and Carnival. But beyond these icons, Brazil is vast and multifarious. There is no one Brazil, and given the impossible task of covering the entirety of its cultural expressions, we invite you to a taste of Brazil. Try something new!
