Danse Danse presents

São Paulo Companhia de Dança

Edouard Lock and a sumptuous ballet noir. Cassi Abranches and the intoxicating energy of Brazil. Marco Goecke and his feverish pas de deux. A full evening, performed by the São Paulo Companhia de Dança!   

In just a few years, the São Paulo Companhia de Dança has established itself as a leading company in Latin America, and offers us the pleasure of a second visit to Danse Danse with a triple bill.

Sought after by the world’s most prestigious dance companies, Edouard Lock continues his brilliant deconstruction of the classical vocabulary. Trick Cell Play showcases the versatility and dexterity of the dancers in an almost cinematographic chiaroscuro of bodies, emblematic of the choreographer’s style. Pure Lock, superbly danced.

In Agora, the young Brazilian choreographer Cassi Abranches, a former dancer with Grupo Corpo, explores the concept of time in Latin American culture.

Lastly, renowned German choreographer Marco Goecke revisits the final pas de deux of Stravinsky’s The Firebird, an ephemeral and moving encounter between a dancing bird and a flying human. A captivating evening in three parts!

Since its founding in 2008 by the São Paulo state government, SPDC has been under the masterful direction of the dancer, writer and director Inês Bogéa. In less than a decade, she has produced some 40 dance pieces, half of them original works. The company has performed on the stages of 60 cities in 8 countries in South America, Asia and Europe. The diversity of its repertoire, plus the virtuosity and versatility of the dancers, have led to its astounding success.
