CURUPIRA 3D – Finalist & Best Costume at Mr Pole Fitness UK 2015
Based on the Brazilian legend of the Curupira – the playful trickster warrior spirit who protects the forests – we created a piece for the pole competition Mr Pole Fitness UK, which took place in Crawley, UK, on the 10th October. Very happy to be one of the finalists and also to win the prize for Best Costume! Amazing body paint / costume by Victoria Gugenheim. The piece is a hommage and support to the cause of the Brazilian indigenous ethnic groups such as the Guarani-Kaiowá and the Munduruku – who constantly fight for their land against big multinationals, the building of hydroelectric dams and farmers. Thanks to London Dance Academy – where I teach – and to everyone who supported the project.
