Amazonas Spectacular Contemporary Latin American Carnival

Category: Show Related artist: ARTE LATINO CULTURAL PROJECT

A World Heritage Production for your festival, event or carnival

Your Art, Music, Dance festival or Carnival event can be a great opportunity for audiences to enjoy a truly Latin American Cultural experience. Our performances include diverse formats from theatrical indoor stagings, site specifics, parades on land or river, in-situ rituals on riversides, lakes, parks, market squares/unconventional dance spaces/streets or… why not try us with any other innovative idea?

The professional cast is leaded by Myriam Ojeda-Patiño-artLAT’s Artistic Director and Choreographer-, Visual Art Director Raul Ordoñez, a multi award winner and leading float artist from Colombia’s Carnival of Blacks and Whites and Venezuelan Music Director/Arranger Wilmer Sifontes.

“The Amazonas Spectacular performance brought a brand new culture and flavour to the festival which was extremely exciting and uplifting. The energy in the show was infectious, and it was a fantastic opening to the Out There Festival weekend. The volunteers that took part were so excited to be involved, and will remember their experience for a lifetime. Thank you all for your tireless hard work and dedication to making this possible”.

“The piece is a response to the effects of climate change on the fragile Amazonian basin, and its indigenous peoples, masterminded by the people behind the Black and White Carnival: actually a UNESCO world heritage event”
– Seven Streets/ Liverpool News-

Amazonas Spectacular was originally commissioned by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and toured in association with UK’s Centre for Carnival Arts (UKCCA), Seachange Arts and Brouhaha International.
