With immense passion and pride we officially launched our theatre stage show “The Carnaval Experience” at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville on September 25, 2019. The first Brazilian stage show of its kind, The Carnaval Experience is a cutting edge celebration of Rio’s Carnaval and urban culture infused with a progressive international flair.
Having performed a version of the show for the first time at The Juniors Auditorium in May 2019, The Factory Theatre show took the production to another level and the show has received high acclaim and exceptional reviews from both industry leaders and the public.
In addition to arts industry and media attending the event, Rio Projekt was heavily featured on Sunrise on Channel 7 with Sam Mac in the lead up to the show as well as in major media including the Daily Telegraph and SBS Portuguese radio.
Fresh from the stages and streets of Brazil, the show features a cast of artists who perform at an elite level in Brazil and Rio Carnaval. With over 20 performers on stage, the powerhouse Rio Projekt ensemble brings the extravagance and authenticity of Rio to life in an exhilarating theatre show experience.
The show delivers all the diva and sass of a “Beyonce” show with Brazilian dancers, live band, acrobatics, visuals, theatrics and the most breathtaking costumes this side of Carnaval. The soundtrack of Samba, booming Bateria (Brazilian drums), Funk and some Pop fusion provides an all encompassing immersive experience for audiences.
Dedicated to upholding artistic integrity and forging new paths, The Carnaval Experience brings Brazil’s progressive performance culture to the global stage and will most certainly change the Western world’s stereotypical perception of Brazilian shows.
