The award-winning Viver Brasil dance company is rooted in the traditional and contemporary forms and techniques of Salvador, the capitol of Bahia, Brazil, with its strong cultural ties to West Africa. Its innovative stage presentations explore Brazil’s racial, social and political history and are living extensions of the history of Afro-Brazilian dance on stage. Viver Brasil’s rousing Feet on the Ground takes audiences on an inspiring cultural journey through Brazil, with a dazzling program of African orixás (deities), ceremonial celebrations, the Brazilian martial arts dance of capoeira and carnaval.
