“Packed with muscle, backflips, blistering samba beats… a big hunk of upbeat Brazilian soul. A jaw-dropping performance.” The Scotsman (August 2009)
For the first time in New Zealand, the world’s greatest Capoeira experts will appear in a spectacular live stage show, featuring inspirational young athletes, dancers and musicians who still live today in the dangerous favelas of Brazil. Their bodies defy what is humanly possible as they leap, flip, kick and spin at breathtaking speed.
In a show that combines the extraordinary martial art of Capoeira (kah-poh-ayr-ra) with the uplifting music and dance of Carnival, Warriors of Brazil showcases all of the power and the passion that is modern Brazil. From a country which has much to celebrate with its successful bid to host the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, its soccer prowess, and powerful musical impact on the world, this show represents a positive flipside to Brazil’s street violence which is also dominating the news headlines.
Joining them on stage are the singers, dancers and percussionists of Rhythm Carnival who hail from the favela of Candeal, which famously saved its young people from a life of violence by encouraging them to trade their weapons for musical instruments. Members of Rhythm Carnival have performed with Santana, The Fugees, Ricky Martin, Sergio Mendes and The Black Eyed Peas.
