Viver Brasil: Feet on the Ground Presented by Strathmore Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 8:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
In the Brazilian state of Bahia, Carnaval turns society on its head in a joyful celebration of a utopian world where all are equal and class distinctions disappear. Carnaval is just one of the customs brought vividly to life on stage by this award-winning company, rooted in the traditional forms of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. You’ll be swept away by spirits in ancient Afro-Brazilian ceremonial dances and (figuratively) knocked out by the martial arts-styled capoeira. Experience a “breathless and colorful” performance—a “vibrant swirl of motion and music” (LA Weekly).
This concert will run approximately 85 minutes with intermission.
