The World Festival presents:
THIS IS BRASIL - The Show
Edinburgh Fringe, Pleasance Grand, 8pm
“The fantasy beach party that everyone wants invited to.”
“Cirque du Soleil with Muscle."
“Packed with muscle, backflips, blistering samba beats.
"A big hunk of upbeat Brazilian soul!”
GET READY FOR A SCORCHING BRASILIAN SUMMER! As the world turns its focus on the home of Football, Samba and Carnaval,
THIS IS BRASIL – The Show brings the exhilarating passion, sensual celebration and irrepressible spirit of Brasil to the Edinburgh Fringe to set the festival alight.
Conceived in Brasil by Afro-Samba superstar Magary Lord who found fame with the smash hit ‘Brazil! Brazil!’ and given a platform by its producers The World Festival – creators of ‘Lady Salsa’, ‘The Merchants of Bollywood’ and ‘Irish Celtic’ – THIS IS BRASIL - The Show is a brand new theatrical spectacular of hi-octane dance, live music from Lord’s legendary 8-piece band ‘Black Samba’, breathtaking acrobatic and visual displays, and extraordinary lighting magic from the team of internationally renowned designer Patrick Woodroffe (London Olympics, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones).
THIS IS the hottest samba party at the festival, but it also shows how the beautiful game emerged from the rhythmic footwork and disciplined arts of capoeira and traditional Afro-Brasilian dance, as an escape for a people struggling against the odds. This is the REAL Brasil: Created and rehearsed in Brasil - with a Brasilian choreographer, performers from the Brasilian Olympic squad and National Folkoric Ballet Company of Bahia, and national champion freestyle footballers; and with evocative video projections from leading Brasilian filmmakers; all set to the uplifting sounds of Afro-Brasilian samba, favela funk and zouk-lambada, with the sensational voice of ‘Canta Bahia’ Paloma Gomes joining Magary on vocals – It doesn't get more authentic than this.
Join us for an exhilarating, hi-octane evening of hot music, sizzling performers and the only truly authentic Brasilian carnaval at the Fringe this year,
