Noozhawk, UCSB Arts & Lectures to Present Grupo Corpo Brazilian Dance Theater

Sign up with Noozhawk for a chance to win tickets to Saturday's performance

UCSB Arts & Lectures and Noozhawk will present the Santa Barbara debut of the exhilarating Brazilian contemporary dance company Grupo Corpo Brazilian Dance Theater performing Parabelo and its newest piece ímã at 8 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 12 at The Granada.

Grupo Corpo combines the sensuality of Afro-Brazilian dance forms, the liquid swing of jazz and the technical prowess of ballet with energy to burn. Known for consistently challenging perceptions of ballet and modern dance, Brazil’s Grupo Corpo incorporates a broad range of elements, from minimalism and rootsy modernity to vigorous pop and urban sounds to produce powerful work of stunning physicality, dynamic ability, and rich visual finesse that Paris’ Le Monde news calls “searing sensuality elegantly under control.”

Before and after the show, join Noozhawk for Caipirinhas and Brahams (Brazilian beer) at The Marquee, 1212 State St. in Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
