Cancelled – Spirit of Brazil ’21
October 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$25
*Event Cancelled due to weather.
San Francisco International Arts Festival will present a combination live in-person and livestream program that culminates in a two-day outdoor program to take place at the Fort Mason Center (on the weekend of October 23-24). The weekend will feature over 30 dance, theatre and music ensembles and companies in more than two dozen separate concerts.
Tickets available for single concerts and Festival Passes for multiple shows.
The 2021 program celebrates the (cautious and health-conscious) reopening of San Francisco’s performing arts industry and seeks to reconnect individual artists with their audiences in a live performance setting. The program will follow Federal Health and Safety guidelines (attendees must be vaccinated/tested negative and wear face coverings).
Spirit of Brazil ’21 presents the artistic elements of Capoeira through a fusion of contemporary and traditional music, dance, and martial arts from Brazil. Born out of a resistance to oppression and now internationally practiced, Capoeira’s history reminds audiences of the power of resistance—an especially relevant message in today’s sociopolitical climate. Spirit of Brazil explores Capoeira as means of self-expression and as a path to freedom from oppression. The dynamic acrobatic and athletic movements, history and tradition, and heart-thumping rhythms presented by an international cast will leave audiences inspired!
