Semana das Mulheres* – Capoeira Angola Workshop 13th to 19th March 2017


The „Centro Cultural Choupana – Grupo de Capoeira Angola “Irmãos Guerreiros” Viena” is organizing this year a week full of interesting activities due to the International Women’s Day, from the 13th until the 19th of March 2017 in Vienna!
We are happy to announce that Prof.a Cobra Preta (Terreiro Mandinga de Angola, Soustons) and Prof.a Chiclete (Angoleiros do Mar, Lille) will be our special guests this year!
At this important event our Mestre Perna, Contramestre Kenneth and Prof. Bom Baiano can´t be missed.

The aim of this event is to unite everybody, “capoeira pra homen, meninx e mulher!”
Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, nationality or deficiencies – “Tamô juntxs!”
We are against any form of discrimination!

We want to remind you of important women’s struggles – for example the right to vote hasn’t been established for a long time (since 1918 in Austria) – and we also want to draw attention to the struggles that they are still confronted with today (e.g. the difference concerning men’s and women’s wages).

This project’s aim is not to solve big-scale problems, however, we would like to contribute to a solution with a discussion of the day-to-day obstacles and create a platform where ideas referring to March 8th, The International Women’s Day can be exchanged. Be it in the Capoeira or in general.

We shall not forget: discrimination – of any kind – does not simply stop overnight.

We would like to invite all of you to our colourful event; starting on March the 13th and lasting until March 19th 2017, in Vienna! Let’s commemorate this date with wonderful classes of Capoeira Angola (from the 16th – 19th of March), Afro-dance classes (18th & 19th of March), a party that cannot be missed (with a wonderful live act!), interesting discussions and talks on that specific topic.
