A pilgrim and her bamboo tripod. Intimacy, complicity and affection between object and artist. Fellow travelers on unknown seas. In the journey of perception, the relationship between the two is transmuted into myriads of symbolic meanings. The expression of the innovative bamboo body art added to capoeira, a new ingredient amalgamated with poetry in movement.

CAPOESIA is a solo act with Poema Mühlenberg, who is co-founder, creative interpreter and producer of Cia Nós No Bambu. The short scene is 16 minutes long, in which Poema expresses the state of the art of her authorial research of acrobatic dance with the artisan instrument Tripod of Bamboo. To compose the choreography of CAPOESIA, Poema gathered and developed an unpublished repertoire of acrobatic dance in bamboo handcrafted sculptures, elements of contemporary dance collected in her experiences with various teachers and artists and references of the Capoeira gesture. His initiation and research in Capoeira took place at Nestor Capoeira School (Rio de Janeiro) with the master and his counter-master, Bonezinho (also actor Raphael Logam).
