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.

I’d like to share a video for those interesting in practicing back-flips and other mortals…
Don’t practice by yourself: ask the help of other capoeiristas who know the technic and can help you. As said in the video, use a “trained” person to help you! Please watch the video until the end since they are some interesting stuff about common mistakes.http://capoeirashanghai.com/virtual_up/videos/mortal_backflip.flv

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art form that mixes music, dance and gymnastics with its fighting components. Its beauty, fluidity and explosive gravity-defying movements have taken the world by storm. Capoeiristas can be found in movies, television ads, music concerts (Cantonese pop star Denise Ho hired Axe Capoeira’s Professor Berimbau to choreograph a Hong Kong show), and video games (Capoeira Mandinga’s founder, Mestre Marcelo, was the model for Tekken’s Eddie Gordo – one of the greatest video game characters of all time).
