Metro Art Presents: Capoeira Exchange

Union Station

800 N. Alameda Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

11:30am to 2:00pm

In celebration of the new year, we’re excited to reunite with Capoeira Exchange, bringing together the capoeira community to play, share and exchange knowledge of this beautiful Afro-Brazilian art form with the public. Capoeira is a martial art form incorporating dance, song, music and oral history. At Union Station, Muito Tempo and Saracuru will initiate a “roda,” a circle formed by capoeiristas and musicians, and into which two capoeiristas enter to play the “game.” Audience participation is welcome!

Location: Procession to South Patio

11:30am Capoeira instruction in the South Patio
12:00pm Procession begins inside station near Starbucks
12:00-2:00pm Roda in the South Patio
