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.
