Jose Luiz Pederneiras

With energy to burn, the exhilarating Grupo Corpo combines classical technique with a modern take on popular Brazilian dance. The heart and soul of the company is the Pederneiras family, who produce powerful work of stunning physicality and rich visual finesse. The company will perform a newly minted version of Alberto Ginastera’s ballet Estancia, a love story set against a landscape of disappearing Argentine gaucho culture, and Gil Refazendo, with a spirited soundtrack by one of the godfathers of Brazilian music, Gilberto Gil.
