“Cigarra” will use elements of acrobatic movement, self-defense, theater, and music to tell the story of pioneering women in Brazilian traditional arts.
ABADÁ-Capoeira is commissioning Brazilian American capoeira master and teacher Marcia Treidler to conduct research and interviews to uncover the story of pioneering women in the Brazilian traditional arts. The work will focus mainly on the story of Marcia Treidler’s 40-year history of teaching, preserving, and performing capoeira. It will include elements of acrobatic movement, self-defense, theater, and music. “Cigarra” will premiere in 2024.
