Post card 4 - Red - Recife Brazil 2014

  1. 1. Arena Pernambuco StadiumArena Pernambuco Stadium
  2. 2. St.Gregory's College Melo 972 Vicente L pez (1638)ó Buenos Aires. Argentina Dear 2nd Grade Children, I am having a wonderful time flying all around Brazil. Today I went to Recife, the capital city of the State of Pernambuco. After the match, I relaxed on the sandy beaches and enjoyed the warm water. I was very careful because there are many sharks in the water here! Yikes! I made some new friends and they taught me capoeira . This is a martial“ ” art form that is a combination of acrobatics, dance, music and fighting stances. Love, Red
  3. 3. Recife’s Host City poster portrays the essence of a coastal city full of movement, art and joy. Frevo, a style of both music and dance, is Recife’s most authentic and characteristic cultural display. It first appeared in the city some 100 years ago and is today included on the list of Brazilian intangible cultural heritage. With colourful umbrellas, dancers perform an elaborate choreography that seems to fill the world with delight. The image shows a frevo dancer whose movements resemble the acrobatics of skilled football players – a combination which is in fact the key note of the poster. The cloud of dynamic movement created by the dancer shows the city’s many colours, highlighting its distinctive landscape of bridges, rivers, boats and rich architecture as well as revellers fully enjoying carnival.
