What is our Black History Play?

Our newest addition...

This is the story of Capoeira told through the eyes of a young boy from West Africa. He tells the story from the start of the oppressive conditions during and after slavery which shaped the unique art form of Capoeira. Capoeira's history begins with the beginning of African slavery in Brazil. As the plot unfolds, we see the struggle and sacrifices of a dark time where the true sense of the human condition is tested. Like the characters in the play, we end this journey aware of the moral consequences of our actions and the power of tolerance, community, shared sacrifices and the will power to never give up.
