Capoeira: Brazilian Martial Arts With Elements of Music & Dance at the Rothko | Houston Press

Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art with a history embedded in slavery, combines elements of dance and music in its performances, and Houstonians will have a chance to see it up close this week.

The Rothko Chapel is working with the Brazilian Arts Foundation to host a performance of Capoeira on its plaza, Thursday, August 9, at 7 p.m. as part of its series of summer events,Summer of Sounds.
