Capoeira Angola: the Dance-Fight Game from Africa and Brazil
We’ll journey across the Atlantic Ocean, from the origins of Capoeira Angola in Central Africa to the shores of Brazil. It’s a visual folktale show of spins, kicks, flips, live music, and an on-stage movement workshop for students. Capoeira Angola is more than just a martial art. It is a cultural doorway into the world of others both like and different from us. It draws us in through dance, movement, music, song, and stories of distant lands.
"I liked the performance and I like how the instruments were played with simple rhythms."
"I loved it! I’ve now taking a liking to this because of Baba Skher. It actually makes me want to learn it."
"Baba Skher was very engaging. He kept us smiling and laughing. It was fun!"
