with Mestre Jason
To imagine Capoeira in one single form, a fight, or a dance, or music etc, is what makes it lose its magic. Capoeira contains in its essence all of this together, making it enchanting.
Unfortunately, nowdays there is an aspect that diverges from this great art: violence. It is often seen that, what was supposed to be the game, ends up in brawl and senseless kicking. Why?
Our art is so beautiful! Why should we bring this violence inside the roda? The world out there is full of it!
I see the roda of Capoeira as the world. Inside it you are in the “micro world” and outside of it, in the “macro world”. I believe there is a great connection between these “two worlds”, one reflects the other.
Inside Grupo Dandára Cordão de Ouro we seek partnership, both in and out of the roda of Capoeira.
