Between the 2nd and the 11th of September Prof. Pererê will be celebrating 2 decades in Capoeira. The Aotearoa Capoeira Community is very special for its diverse and cooperative environment and Pererê and his students play a great role in it. If you like to play and train in a diverse and friendly environment, you can’t miss this event! Axé Pererê! Que venham mais 100 anos para celebrarmos juntos!!I’ll be joining this event along with Mestre Urubu Malandro (California, USA), Mestre Bira, Mestrando Armandinho (Brazil), Prof Júnior, Instrutor Mercúrio, Prof Zigue-zague and his awesome crew. You’ll find more information about these guests on the respective links, but for further details on the event, that takes place both in Christchurch and Wellington, please visit Aruandê’s website.
I first met Pererê when I moved to New Zealand in 2008 and ever since he has been a very close friend and source of inspiration. Our schools are in constant exchange and some of our students became close friends too. With our events we hope to welcome more friends into our network, hopefully inspiring other communities around to adhere Aotearoa’s open-minded perspectives on Capoeira.
Below I share Pererê’s invitation letter and contacts with you.
