About the Show Less...

A play dealing with conflicts more relevant today than ever before: religious freedom, political order, apathy and fanaticism. Read More >

Britain’s first ever professional Capoeira production based on Euripides’ epic play comes to Arcola for a limited run as part of the 2009 Brazilian Season.

A masterpiece of theatrical intensity, grappling with conflicts more relevant today than ever before: religious freedom, political order, apathy and fanaticism.

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art incorporating diverse elements of African culture including dance, music, acrobatics and various flighting forms and the merging of two cultural forms both involving ritual, war and passion.
