The Capoeira Knights were one of the standout acts at The World Festival last year, bringing their mesmerising martial-art inspired acrobatics and infectious samba rhythms to the normally sedate and peaceful St George’s West church venue.
Their success has been rewarded this year with a return visit and a bumping up the bill to a later slot than before. Whether this is in recognition of the Boys’ glistening muscle-rippling appeal; or as a result of this show’s various 5-star reviews, The World Festival are definitely on to a winner by inviting them back.
This is one of those shows that should appeal to most, whether you prefer your heart to be pounding to some great live world music, or in your mouth as you witness jaw-dropping feats of skill.
Or, in the case of most men in the audience, sinking to your feet as you realise your muscles look more like pillowcases full of jelly in comparison.
