Mestre Joãozinho da Figueira

We are very honoured to have a pre-launch screening of the film ‘Body Games: Capoeira and Ancestry’, a film by Richard Pakleppa, Matthias Röhrig Assunção and Mestre Cobra Mansa, the result of several years’ research in Angola.

JOGO DE CORPO / BODY GAMES tells a story of combat games, dances and music that connect Brazil and Africa from the time of slavery to the present. The film is driven by Mestre Cobra Mansa’s need to understand the ancestry of his art form, Capoeira, as part of a wider concern with his Afro-Brazilian heritage.

FRIDAY 6th DECEMBER, 7pm, at the usual roda venue – Gibbs Green Tenants Hall, West Kensington, W14 9NN.
