Spirit of Brazil

Project Description

Spirit of Brazil brings to light contributions women made throughout the development of these arts, while also accentuating the music of capoeira—the only martial art practiced to live music—and how capoeira, maculelê, and samba are linked by common musical rhythms. 

Artistic Director, Márcia Treidler will premiere new, innovative choreography derived from a fusion of contemporary and traditional Brazilian music, dance and capoeira. The art works presented, born out of a resistance to oppression and now internationally practiced, remind us of the power of resistance a message relevant today.
