Are you ready to Fringe, amigo? Picture the great carnivals of old; street parties in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia. Every corner of Latin America has a tradition of soulful fiesta. The Carnaval Latino is influenced by street markets, La Fura del Baus, Rio Carnival, Fringe Parade, Cumbia Movement and street art.
You are invited to get closer to the heat of the hot, sweaty bodies and Samba the night away at Carnaval Latino in Melbourne’s Docklands. Over the past few years the feeling has been growing, with different creative crews in Melbourne providing amazing cultural experiences for audiences. This community has often collaborated yet the collision of this energy was long coming. The Carnaval Latino crew include EL TARRO (the smallest performance space in the world), the Institute of Pataphysical Studies and Samba Cine Club.
We are inviting the arts community to discover their inner Latino at the street Fiesta, which will be held at Shed 4, Docklands, on Friday 7th October.
Expect music, dance, performance, yummy food, exotic drinks and more. And as it is Carnaval, fancy dress is a must!
“Over the years we have been creating amazing experiences for Melbourne audiences. The different creative crews who form this amazing community often collaborate; and this Fringe Carnavale will be a fiery collision of energy that was a long time coming!” – Hernan Palacio, Director of The Institute of Pataphysical Studies
