A high energy mix of hip hop, African dance, samba and capoeira, hit Brazilian dance show Balé de Rua makes its debut at the Peacock Theatre after a triumphant international tour.
“Their outporing of energy borders on the ecstatic”
As colourful as the streets from which they hail, the cast of 15 dancers and two vocalists deliver a joyful celebration of life, love and the Brazilian way.
Choreographed by Marco Antônio Garcia, a self-taught dancer, in collaboration with the French director Paul Desveaux, Balé de Rua (which literally translates as ‘street ballet’) traces the country’s history from its African roots to contemporary Brazil.
A lively backdrop of percussion sets the scene for this sun-soaked spectacular – exhilarating rhythms and breathtaking body movements ensure this dynamic and engaging show will have you on your feet, dancing in the aisles!
Tickets: £15 – £40
FREE post show Samba dance classes every Tuesday for same day ticket holders!
