Residency: Brazilian Capoeira

Artist: Multiple Artists

Type: Residencies


Capoeira is a traditional Afro-Brazilian art-form which blends music, dance, acrobatics and martial arts creating an elegant game-like interaction amongst the participants. Daniel Mattar introduces traditional Brazilian instruments such as the Berimbau (made of a gourd and one string) and pandeiros (tambourines). Students learn to create a traditional capoeira circle called a “roda” and dance and sing along to the beats of the Berimbau, while learning about the Afro-Brazilian culture and the history of how Afro-Brazilian slaves achieved freedom through the art of Capoeira.
