About the Workshop

Puma Camillê is a leading Brazilian multi-artist pushing the art form further through a hybridised performance style, combining capoeira with voguing. For this workshop, Puma invites you to join the Choreography LAB workshop, regardless of your dance experience. The workshop is open to everyone, and Puma will share her movement practice and research to create an amazing choreography with the group.

The workshop's main goal is to connect the experiences of Black people and the LGBTQIAPN+ community through the lens of Capoeira and the Ballroom community. The workshop encourages a free and fluid mind and body flow without societal standards and expectations. Participants are encouraged to explore their physicality within their limits and express themselves authentically without pressure to perform or conform. Everyone is welcome to explore the art forms of Capoeira and Vogue while honouring ancestral traditions and inspiring creativity, continuity, authenticity, and fluidity.

For the final day of the workshop (01/09), participants are invited to perform together with Puma Camillê at the Drag Night event at TOU, during Skeivå Rogaland Pride. The schedule for this day will be announced shortly. Performing is not mandatory to join the workshop.

Puma Camillê is a powerful and innovative multi-artist from Brazil who skillfully blends capoeira and voguing to express herself uniquely. Being a black trans woman, Puma sees a connection between these two styles - a philosophy of resistance and rebellion. Capoeira has its roots in resistance against slavery, while voguing celebrates the emergence of queer identities in 1980s Harlem.

Born in São Paulo, Puma discovered the Vogue scene while travelling for capoeira events. She noticed similarities between the two movement styles due to their shared philosophy of resistance and rebellion. As a result, she developed a distinct practice incorporating elements from both.. Through her experiences as a black trans woman, Puma found in both art forms a sense of defiance – capoeira as a form of resistance from slavery, and voguing as a celebration of queer identities amid the LGBTQIA-phobic landscape of ‘80s Harlem – each with their origins in the search for freedom.
