O Samba do Crioulo Doido is a sharp, frontal critique of the racial stereotypes associated with black bodies that haunt our collective subconscious.   

Luiz de Abreu created this piece in 2004, in a Brazil ravaged by racist and homophobic violence. He uses a radical choreographic language in which he questions identity and the way it is expressed in the body. The piece became a classic in the Brazilian contemporary dance repertoire, and was passed on to Calixto Neto twenty years later, in a context in which it still resonates remarkably.  


After the theatre performance, a loop of three films will allow you to delve further into the visual universe of Calixto Neto and his friends. For the occasion, DJ Marara Kelly from Belém do Pará, now based in Switzerland, will also spin for the first time in Belgium.
