Spirit of Brazil 2017
Quebrando Fronteiras | Breaking Borders
Artistic Director: Márcia Treidler “Mestra Cigarra”
Featuring the ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco Performance Company with special guest capoeira and percussion artists from Brazil!
Spirit of Brazil ‘17 brings the artistic splendor of Brazil to San Francisco—presenting some of the world’s best folk traditions and artists.
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.
Presented by an international cast, the dynamic acrobatic and athletic movements, history and tradition, and heart-thumping rhythms will leave you inspired!
Notably, the festival features prominent female artists. Capoeira and Brazilian percussion have historically been dominated by male talent. Spirit of Brazil ‘17 features, and is produced, directed and choreographed by female master artists.
