Cette représentation s’inscrit dans Brussels, dance !

Luiz de Abreu uses dance as a way of deconstructing racialised identities. Playing with stereotypes linked to the performance of the black body, notably in the context of the carnival, the piece mocks racist clichés and offers a humorous criticism of relationships of domination. Revived by Calixto Neto, this “crazy samba” liberates and emancipates the body and the individual.

With the extremely unfavourable political context in which Brazil currently finds itself, Charleroi danse is joining the initiative of the CND Centre National de la Danse and offering support to Brazil’s Panorama festival. With the touring and hosting of O Samba do Crioulo Doido and Calixto Neto, the festival is being given carte blanche to present the work and engagement of Brazilian artists today and enable them to be heard.


The PINPON mobile foodtruck team will offer local, simple and seasonal catering.
