NOORD/SUL — Mano Amaro

NOORD/SUL is a solo by Mano Amaro that embarks on his personal history. He leads a journey from his ancestors in Africa, through the Portuguese slave trade to his birthplace Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil and finally to his current residence in Antwerp.

NOORD/SUL is a story about migration, cultural heritage, tradition, segregation and identity, interlaced with suffering, trial and error, faith, resistance and survival. With words, images and music, Afro-Brazilian and contemporary dance, Mano connects this story with Carnaval.

CREDITS : concept & performance: Mano Amaro / accompaniment & direction: Mike van Alfen / voice over: Isaac Amaro With the support of: Fonds voor Talentontwikkeling/Fameus, WIPCOOP/Mestizo Arts Platform, City of Antwerp, Rataplan and WALPURGIS.
