This proposal will highlight my thoughts on how to select the most important content of Brazilian culture to be displayed at thefestival. In order for it to be well portraited and a great contribuition for the international festival in London, I would highly recommend putting into practice the followingsuggestions.
Indigenous people - mostly semi-nomadic tribes who subsisted on hunting, fishing and agriculture - were the first inhabitants ofBrazil. Therefore I recommend having a presentation of the traditional dance of the Amazon Indians. I also suggest having a display that allows visitors to take a look atthe amazing cultures, dances and rituals that belong to the indigenous Brazilians.
Another aspect that would interest people would be theBrazilian Folklore since it is world famous and essential to the Brazilian popular culture. Visitors would enjoy a live perfomance of the dramatic dances of Bumba-meu-Boi,Carimbó, Maracatu, among others. That should bring them closer to our history and traditions, creating some sort of bond with them.
I am sure everyonein the festival would love to experience the Brazilian Carnival Spirit and that would be possible through the presentation of Brazilian samba schools on stage such asBeija-Flor and Mangueira. Visitors would be amazed by the energy and the beauty of that performance, making it the perfect way to end the contribution of Brazil to thefestival.
My proposal would be the best way to introduce visitors to the culture and uniqueness of Brazil and I hope it will gain your acceptance.
