Con-Art Festival Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai + Illumin8tors show

During centuries, Chinese martial arts and dance have nourished the stlye of calligraphy strokes with their movement control and flow. Why not then bring the poetry of Chinese calligraphy into capoeira movements? This Shanghai capoeiristas let their bare feet and hands become their brushes soaked in Chinese ink. The result is a kind of abstract calligraphy that discloses the patterns created by the contact between the body and the floor element in capoeira. The capoeira performance you will see in this video is the final number in one version of the Illumin8tors’ rock opera Solar/Lunar, based on Chinese ancient myths.

In October 2007, Mestre Marcelo was invited to come to China by a young italian guy who was leading a group of capoeiristas in Shanghai. In the four and a half years since, Diego “Guerreiro” Pappalardo has amazed and inspired all his students here with his drive, self-motivation and love for/commitment to capoeira. This year, at Capoeira Mandinga Shanghai’s 5th annual Batizado & Troca de Cordão, he received his blue belt and officially became Instrutor Guerreiro. Massive.
