A taste of the

Pernambuco carnival



Saravá! Wild Carnival is a dance party inspired by the multitude of rhythms, dances, characters, and rituals of the famous carnival of Pernambuco, northeast of Brazil. The state is where grew up the iconic Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector, the muse of .BR's upcoming immersive theater production, Inside the Wild Heart opening on October 2018.




Four top Brazilian DJs will get the crowd moving with a variety of the best of Brazilian carnival dance music; Eduardo Brechó, Patrictør4, Tutu Moraes and Tahira.


Maracatu NY and Batalá New York will bring the live drums to set the dancefloor on fire.

Adding to the artistic feeling from House of Yes, the party will have a theatrical approach to Brazilian culture that has been the company’s signature, featuring performances, big puppets, and art installations inspired by the Pernambuco carnival and the works of Clarice Lispector.



Partygoers are invited to add to the mix by proposing to bring their own "bloco de carnaval", a group of people offering some form of entertainment to the crowd, being through music, dance or play - a big Pernambuco carnival tradition. Blocos will have access to discounted tickets.


We invite everyone to gather some friends and create their own "bloco de carnaval" and be an active participant of Saravá! Wild Carnival.

Blocos de Carnaval


“If you were you, how would you be

and what would you do?”

Extravagant  •  Funny  •  Daring

Comfortable  •  Unique  •  Glamorous

Silly  •  Creative  •  Simple  •  Festive

Elaborated  •  Masks  •  Freeing  •  

We highly recommend bringing bathing suits!

There is an outside shower and jacuzzy and since it's carnival, you will probably want to get wet.


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 intosave your force” but also means "welcome".
