Donald Hutera previews Grupo Corpo, the most well-known Brazilian modern dance group, who are returning to Sadler's Wells this week. I have enjoyed most of their pieces when they have been here in the past.

Donald Hutera reviews Grupo Corpo at Sadler's Wells and clearly loved every minute. Shame that there were only 3 showings, which meant that I missed it.

Keith Watson in The Guardian is keen on only one of the works in Grupo Corpo's double bill:

And Nadine Meisner doesn't like it at all:

Shining display of unity, honesty

There's a reason why the much-travelled dancers of Grupo Corpo routinely earn standing ovations. They're irresistible.

Grupo Corpo: Flex Appeal
By Sarah Kaufman for The Washington Post

The dancers of Brazil's Grupo Corpo seem to be hinged in places the average human doesn't even know exist. Their spines warp and buckle with ribbony ease, their elbows and knees can wobble and wiggle independent of one another, and their hips -- well, they simply have a mind of their own. During Thursday night's program at the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater, those 19 pairs of hips snaked and shimmied, swirled and popped and gyrated with scarcely a moment's rest.

Behold the bodies beautiful.

Which is what the audience did for two hours. Though the stage was full of agreeably honed and toned dancers in candy-colored skintight spandex, something was lacking.

Quote:
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil
Grupo Corpo may be Brazil's most esteemed dance troupe, but its headquarters in this landlocked state capital are far removed from the Rio de Janeiro-São Paulo axis that dominates Brazilian culture. Even by local standards, the company's decision to locate its office and rehearsal space in a nondescript residential neighborhood on the outskirts of town seems a little odd.

Presented by DanseDanse, Grupo Corpo comes to Montreal next week with "21" and "O Corpo".

"Grupo Corpo’s singularity lies in the unique style imprinted upon it by Rodrigo Pederneiras. Considered Brazil’s Jiri Kylián, and company choreographer since 1978, Pederneiras uses the technique and the choreographic structures of ballet, while introducing the suppleness of modern dance and, most of all, the sinuousness, the complex rythmicality and the upper-body work unique to African dance."
