Journey of the Orixas

The enrichment we experience through cultural exchange and migration is celebrated in our Carnival production, Journey of the Orixas (oh-ree-sha-s).

In the Afro-Brazilian Candomblé tradition, the Orixás (oh-ree-sha-s) are spirits in human form – our puppet Oxumaré is the rainbow Orixa – and our music, dance, beautiful costumes and puppets give your guests a glimpse of this ancient, colourful belief-system.

Journey of the Orixas comprises of African percussive phrasing and dance, Afro-Brazilian Carnival traditions, visual arts, and lost praise songs of age-old African gods, and often engages over 150 participants from across the UK – though you can hire this performance for as many or as few performers as you need.
