Following a tremendously successful series of acclaimed performances in London and Paris, Brasil Brasileiro has just set off to seize the world´s renowned stages and to win the hearts of international audiences. Virtually sparkling with a contagious zest for life, Brasil Brasileiro brings alive the spirit that makes Brazil so unique: samba! Far more than just a dance, samba is the paragon of an incomparable sense of life, a country´s voice, the pulse of an entire nation.
With ardent passion and boisterous wit, a superb ensemble of 38 dancers, live-musicians and singers takes the audience on a musical and dancing voyage of discovery through genuine Brazil, carrying its ineffable sense of life in all its facets. “Infectious! You won´t see any better than Brasil Brasileiro”, the Evening Standard raved about the show´s premiere in London, while the Sunday Express rejoiced: “… the hottest, most explosive, most unmissable show in town …”.
From its traditional beginnings as a ritual folk dance via its meaning as a form of song improvisation through to the modern samba of the legendary street carnival in Rio de Janeiro: To this day, samba embodies the real Brazil as one of the biggest ambassadors of Brazilian culture, not only representing more than 100 different styles of dance, music and song, but epitomizing a nation´s mindset.
Whether sensual moves, swift step sequences or the vigorous, distinctive rhythm of South America: Brasil Brasileiro, a mise-en-scène of world-acclaimed stage director Claudio Segovia, is a pure and empathetic homage to true Brazil and the cultural roots of its very own identity.
