Brasiliance, 2013

an oral history project

StoneCrabs Theatre Company is launching an oral history project focusing on the oral histories of Brazilians living in London, who migrated to live or study or as a result of the military coups, between 1960s and 1980s.

Through real-life stories the project aims to break stereotypes of Brazilian identity (i.e; carnival and football) and will look at their contribution to shaping the social, cultural and religious identities of London today.

Thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, BRASILIANCE will run in partnership with King’s College, Regent’s University and University College London, culminating in a final festival in London.
