What do two dances that seem so different, such as capoeira and flamenco have in common? Both serve as a means of emotional expression that can become a bridge that towards personal rediscovery. This reality will be on display in the communitarian dance sessions that are programmed every evening in the PachaMama area of the Rototom Sunsplash.
The flamenco dancer and performer Noemí Martínez will facilitate a dance workshop on August 15, 16 and 17 at 19:00, titled Dancing Emotions, in which she will guide participants, via different bars of flamenco, through an intense journey through their emotions and life experiences. All of which, while leaving out the techniques and choreographies, by using theatre and contemporary art exercises to delve in the different energies that are intertwined in flamenco.
She will be given a break by the visually majestic martial art of capoeira. On August 18 and 19 (17.15), the international group Capoeira Aboliçao will bring the audience a little closer to this ancestral Afro-Brazilian dance with beginners workshops that will close on the 20th with a unique show that fuses the most visually pleasing aspects of this art in motion, such as traditional games among ‘capoeirists’, the dance of the maculele and samba.
