“As they coil, kick and spin across the stage, every move feels like a celebration of the body energetic and the body beautiful.” The Guardian
Brazilian tour-de-force Grupo Corpo returns with a double bill of NAC premieres. Sem Mim – meaning “without me” – is an ebbing and flowing ballet, performed in nude coloured unitards and tattooed with inscriptions from the Middle Ages. A soothing, rocking original score, inspired by a medieval Galician-Portuguese songbook, tells of women who mourn the absence and celebrate the return of lovers from sea. Ímã – or “magnet” – is a kinetic, exuberant exploration of attraction and repulsion amidst an ever-changing array of radiant coloured light, set to the driving, multi-instrumental sounds of Brazilian trio +2.
