Concurso de Passistas

It was great to see the second day of the frevo passista competition! I saw the adult male competitors and the female competitors for the “frevo de rua folião” category (or “street frevo”). I saw a lot of really impressive and polished dancers, and I also saw a lot of creativity in the movement that I hadn’t seen before. It was quite a spectacle, with some very bright and glittery costumes. The Pátio de São Pedro was almost empty, however, much to the chagrin of some audience members who are concerned about how much longer the competition will continue.
