Chinadaily Article on Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai

 chinadailyarticleJuly2014Martelo

 

看过巴西世界杯开幕式的小伙伴们一定对其中巴西战舞的表演片段并不陌生。作为一种16世纪由巴西的非裔移民反抗贵族和奴隶主的斗争衍发出来、介于艺术与武术之间的独特舞蹈,巴西战舞在过去的20几年里开始风靡全球,甚至在上海也赢得不少忠实粉丝。

 与其他运动不同的是,巴西战舞(又叫卡波耶拉)不只是体能的训练,它还包含了音乐,比如学习乐器和唱歌,以及对巴西文化的了解。

 A group of performers indelibly etched the excitement and color of the Brazilian art form capoeira into the minds of viewers around the world at the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup half a month ago.

 Capoeira originated from the slave communities on the east coast of Brazil, its popularity exploding internationally over the past 25 years or so, drawing some dedicated fans in Shanghai in the process.

Chinese New Year Schedule 2014

Capoeira Movie Sunday: “Mestre Bimba: Capoeira Iluminada”

Capoeira Movie Sunday: "Mestre Bimba: Capoeira Illuminada"

This Sunday, January 12th, at 2 pm we will meet for watching a capoeira documentary “Mestre Bimba: Capoeira Iluminada”. Everybody is welcome, so tell your friends if they’re interested in understanding more about capoeira.

About the movie:

One of the best pieces of work showing the life of Mestre Bimba and his work with Capoeira Regional. The interviews with his former students, now Mestres, are full of history and great information. The bonus features with his son Mestre Nenel are priceless. This video is a must for any serious Capoeirista who understands the value of history in the art we practice today.

Language: It’s in Portuguese with English subtitles, and someone will help translating into Chinese the key parts.

Venue: Jojo Kebab, 1321 Yuyuan Lu, near Dingxi Lu (Metro: Zhongshan park, exit 5 on line 2). 愚园路1321号, 近定西路
