Bringing together Capoeira Angola practitioners from across New Zealand to present this beautiful art of cunning and acrobatics…the mix of live music and singing that bring to the present moment a long historical story of resistance and the fight against an oppressive system…born in a time of slavery and colonization in Brazil with strong African roots…the ‘Roda’ is a celebration and a way to keep the art alive and strong…..to test our physical abilities and strengthen our spirits in a playful and community enriching event.
