Gingarte Capoeira, Brazilian Music and Dance
Marisa Cordeiro, Director

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 11:30AM

Location: Student Center Cafeteria (B Building)
Admission: FREE
Gingarte Capoeira Performance Company is led under the direction of Marisa Cordeiro, an accomplished performance artist who started her professional career with the international performance company Oba-Oba and is one of a few female masters of capoeira in the world. Capoeira started during the slave trade in Brazil in the 16th century, as a way for slaves to practice self-defense without getting caught. They disguised it as a dance by incorporating music, instruments and dance-live movements that could turn deadly. It was outlawed in Brazil until Mestre Bimba legitimized it in mid-1900s. The performance will feature acts of Capoeira, Maculelê, and Samba music and dance. Website: www.gingartecapoeira.org
