Tania Santiago's Movendo com Capoeira intertwines Capoeira, Brazil’s most enduring cultural symbol, with the spiritual family of the African Diaspora in Brazil, the Orixas, to tell a deeper story of these cultural gifts that have been curated by her community in Brazil for almost two centuries.

The Movendo com Capoeira performance will also pay a tribute to Bob Marley and the reggae music for which he made famous around the world. Reggae has rooted itself in Salvador, Bahia over the years as it has been a voice for the oppressed and represents freedom, happiness and community to the people of Bahia.

Born and raised in Salvador, Bahia, Tania Santiago has taught, danced, and choreographed for the most well known companies in Brazil, most notably Olodum, the world renowned Bloco Afro. In 1999 Tania founded the Aguas Dance Company in SF and through it has worked to honor and preserve the deep roots of traditional Afro Brazilian dance. Aguas has performed on some of the Bay Area’s best stages including, Dance Mission Theater, Brava Theater, Herbst Theater, ODC and the Palace of Fine Arts.  Most recently, Aguas has performed at the Cuba Caribe and Black Choreographer’s Festivals and at ODC’s Dance and Diaspora. Tania performs with her own company and has also danced and guest choreographed with the Ramon Alayo Dance Company and the Deep Waters Dance Company.
