About The Event

Capoeira Angola Quintal is honored to support once again 1 Billion Rising acknowledging our sisters through Capoeira. Capoeira is a martial art that combines music and singing, done and created by the African people who were oppressed under the bondage of slavery in Brazil. It was a way to create their own space, expression, believes, wisdom, joy and celebration in the practice of capoeira. it is a way to heal and build strong individuals and communities. In this form we feel profoundly connected to 1 Billion Rising and Eve Ensler's mission.
