Sisters Grimm, the creators of the Grammy Award-nominated show Inala, are delighted to present the UK premiere of Voices of the Amazon, a passionate dance musical from the heart of Brazil, directed by Pietra Mello-Pittman and choreographed by Helen Pickett. Casting is to be announced.
Voices of the Amazon will open at Sadler’s Wells on 4 July following an appearance at the Chekhov International Theatre Jubilee Festival in Moscow. The show has recently been announced as part of the line-up for Latitude festival 2017.
Set amidst the Brazilian rainforest, Voices of the Amazon follows the story of Beleza; a water spirit from the Amazon, whose search to cure her dying sister takes her on a life-changing journey deep into the rainforest.
Voices of the Amazon features a sensational musical score, containing sounds recorded from the Amazon Rainforest, with music and songs performed in English and Portuguese. Combined with Helen Pickett’s fusion of ballet, contemporary and capoeira, the show aims to highlight the damaging effects of deforestation, the loss of natural medicines and plants, and promises an exhilarating live experience, embracing the true spirit of Brazil.
