Festival Brazil in London
Bringing the vibrant, dynamic culture of contemporary Brazil to the heart of London, Festival Brazil celebrates the country’s rich cultural heritage – including music, visual arts, dance, literature, debates and food.
Festival Brazil features UK performances at Royal Festival Hall by cultural icon Maria Bethânia, superstar singer song-writer Gilberto Gil, the legendary psychedelic rock band Os Mutantes. From the favelas of Salvador, the world masters of capoeira leap, flip, kick and spin at breathtaking speed in Brazil! Brazil! a new show for all ages.
Brazil’s most evocative writers and poets form the heart of 2010’s London Literature Festival. Plus two ground-breaking Hayward Gallery exhibitions, featuring some of today’s most exciting international artists, challenge our expectations of art, sculpture and design.
Enjoy an exclusive taste of Brazil this summer: from samba-sushi to traditional moqueca and xinxim, an array of caipirinhas, food markets and outdoor stalls, you’ll find a feast of Brazilian food, drink and gifts.
And look out for the many free performances that take over the Southbank Centre site during the Festival.
