Looking to spread the ever-stronger word of carioca culture with a series of free events in the very beating heart of Centro, X-Tudo brings together art, music, theatre and dance for ten days of exhibitions, shows and workshops. From the Vidigal creative collective Nós do Morro to choreographer Lia Rodrigues and local favourites Orquestra Voadora, the programming has been designed to provide something for all ages and backgrounds to appreciate. The explosion of urban art in the pacified favelas also receives its own exhibition Cor da Paz (The Colour of Peace) with eight young carioca artists showing off their styles.
Five don’t miss events at X-Tudo Cultural
Orquestra Voador – From classic samba to famous pop hits, nothing is safe from the brass band makeover, with Grupo tá na Rua providing further off the wall entertainment.
Estéreos Tipos – a tongue-in-cheek look at hip hop culture, from its clichés to its heroes.
Letuce – The boy-girl duo keep the unusual musical flavours flowing with their quirky, romantic sound.
Barrela – The Nós no Morro group present a hard-hitting piece of theatre about a young man who unwittingly becomes caught up in a life of crime.
Novos Talentos – a presentation of six theatrical shorts performed by the city’s emerging talent.
