The exuberance and energy of Brazil returns to Sadler's Wells this summer as 35 performers from Rio de Janeiro bring alive the spirit that makes Brazil so unique. Famed for its euphoric dance heritage, this is a country where the musical culture of Africa and Europe merge in a melting pot of dance forms to create its own national rhythm: the samba.
From its beginnings as a ritualistic love dance, to the excitement of a modern day Rio street carnival, Brasil Brasileiro features an incredible live band, and shows samba in all its forms, showing dazzling displays of the lightning footwork of forro, the agility of capoeira, and the groovy moves of batucada take you on a dance journey through a country unlike any other.
