The country side inspiration and the resulting contemporary sound track, written by Tom Zé and José Miguel Wisnik,  for 1997’s Parabelo, prompted the choreographer from Grupo Corpo to bring into life that, which he himself refers to, as his “most Brazilian and regional” creation.

From working and devotion chants, from the memory of the rhythmic baião and from the exuberant and an ever present, entangled, rhythmic points and counterpoints, emerges choreography full of hip swaying and feet stamping. It’s a ravishing statement of maturity and of the expressive teachings, developed throughout many years, by the maker of Missa do Orfanato and Sete ou Oito Peças para um Ballet

The aesthetic of the votive offerings, from country side churches, inspire Fernando Velloso and Paulo Pederneiras in the creation of the 15 meter X 8 meter panels, which provide support for the ballet’s stage setting.   

With the intensity of the colors veiled by black tulle and unveiled only in the small and imperative space of the ballet slippers, costume designer Freuse Zechmeister, creates the set of lights and shadows that “dress” the dancers in the first part of PARABELO.   And at the explosive ballet finale, the leotards are freed from the veil, showing off the joyous, high temperatures of their colors.
