Yes to Brazilian Carnival at House of Yes? Yes to celebrating Clarice Lispector’s centennial in an 8h long party exploring the multitude of the Brazilian carnival? Or as we say, CarnAval? YES!
We say YES and we invite you to do the same. Get in your costumes and be ready to dance, a lot.
Saravá! Yes Carnaval will feature live music by the percussion groups Pandeiro Ensemble, Mambembé, Fogo Azul and the percussionist and Stomp performer Marivaldo dos Santos. The DJs Greg Caz, Mickey Pérez, Deo Jorge and Tahira (Brazil) will keep the crowd moving with the best of the Brazilian carnival beats.
Adding to the artistic feeling from House of Yes, the party will have a theatrical approach to Brazilian culture that has been the Group .BR's signature, featuring performances, dance, and art installations inspired by the works of Clarice Lispector.

No, you don’t have to master the steps from all carnival songs to have lots of fun at Saravá! Yes Carnaval. All you need to let go and enjoy is to get the feeling of the beat. If you feel you could use some help, join us on February 20th from 6-9 PM for the workshop Carnaval Dance Feelings. We’ll go over samba, frevo, coco e ciranda and close the night with a fun dance jam to really get the feeling of it all. Lead by Andressa Furletti, Debora Balardini, and Gio Mielle.
This is a donation-based workshop and we usually sold out quickly, we recommend reserving your spot as soon as tickets become available.
MAKE YOUR OWN MASK
February 18th and 19th
6:30PM - 8:30PM
You are more crafty than you think. All you need is a couple of evenings savoring some Brazilian treats as you create your own mask from scratch. There will be no right or wrong, just let your creativity loose and surprise yourself with the result. On the first night, we will create the base of the mask and on the second night, we will paint and decorate it.
Remember to wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty and potentially stained by paint. This workshop is open to all levels, no prior experience is necessary.
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.
