Dancing quadrilha is a big Festa Junina tradition. Most of these dances emerge from 19th century Europe, which were brought by the Portuguese. The quadrilha features couple formations around a mock wedding whose bride and groom are the central focus of the dance to celebrate the fertility of the land. People dance in pairs and the singer from the band commands the dance by calling and explaining what the next steps are.
In some Afro-Brazilian religions, Saravá is used as a mantra to invoke the force that moves nature. It can also be used as a greeting that would translate into “save your force” but also means "welcome".
House of Yes is known for being a temple of expression dedicated to connection, creativity and celebrating life. The collective of artists behind of the voted best venue of the northeast by the DJ Mag, believe in the creative energy of every person who enters this space, that performance, dance and art can inspire and heal us, that the world can be a better place, that weird is wonderful and that consent is essential.
