São Paulo Dance Company

Artistic direction: Inês Bogéa

Creation: 2008

    

Created in January 2008 by the Government of the State of Sao  Paulo, The São Paulo Dance Company (SPDC) is directed by Inês Bogéa,  doctor of arts, ballet-dancer, documentary maker and writer.

Throughout this period, the Company has been seen by an audience of  more than 1.000,000 people in different countries (Argentina, Austria,  Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Germany, Holland, Israel,  Italy, Luxembourg, Paraguay, Switzerland, the United States of America,  Uruguay, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates), experiencing approximately  150 cities, totaling more than 1,100 performances. The Company has a  varied repertoire, ranging from classical to contemporary. Recognized by  specialized critics as one of the main dance companies of Latin  America, since its creation, the Company has produced more than 80  choreographies, including commissioned new works  of important names of international dance like Edouard Lock, Richard  Siegal and Marco Goecke, and Brazilian choreographers, as Rodrigo  Pederneiras, Henrique Rodovalho e Jomar Mesquita; and restages of works from Jirí Kylián, William Forsythe, George Balanchine, Nijinska, Nacho Duato among others.

SPDC searches for a connection with the audience by curiosity and  perception of the dance world in motion. The programs show the variety  of the repertoire of SPDC and the dynamics of Brazilian dancers. The  dancers are versatile and able to move from classical to contemporary  dance with a particular accent. The Company is a meeting place of  distinct artists – such as choreographers, light designers,  photographers, guest lecturers, restagers, writers, artists,  cartoonists, musicians, costume designers and others.

The Educational and Audience Awareness Programs, another strand of  action of SPDC, are divided into: Lecture For Educators, in which we  have the opportunity to dialogue about the backstage of this art; Dance  Workshops, a meeting to experience the daily life of the dancers; Open  Performances for Students and Senior Citizens, in which the proposal is  to see, hear and perceive the dance world; Programs focus on social  institutions and organizations aimed to take the dance culture to  different audiences and spaces; Dança em Rede (Dance Network), an online  dance encyclopedia on the Company’s website and a series of 39  documentaries about the History of Dance in Brazil.
