This month Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center welcomes contemporary Brazilian dance company Grupo Corpo. Known for continuing to challenge perceptions and transcend the traditional definitions of ballet and modern dance, Grupo Corpo (literally translated to “Body Group”) incorporates a wide range of elements, from aesthetic minimalism to fast pop and urban sounds. The group was founded in 1975 and has continued to win acclaim by critics throughout the world.

The Music Center debut includes the inventive and athletically challenging new piece Ímã, which is sure to inspire audiences with what many critics describe as its “effervescent energy”. And in keeping with its historical and ethnic roots, the group will pay tribute to Brazil’s traditional rhythms, brought to life through Parabelo’s multitextured soundscape, which is as breathtaking as the movements onstage.

For dance lovers, music lovers, or art lovers, Grupo Corpo’s performances will surely amaze. Be sure to experience them.

The show will take place Friday-Sunday, January 28th-January 30th at the Music Center, located at 135 N. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Tel: 213.972.7211. Ticket Prices: $25, $35, $60, $85, $105.
