RAINBOW SERPENT FESTIVAL
Imagine, 7,000 people partying and frollicking around in the middle of arid bushland and in the midst of it all a capoeira roda. Combine it with a bit of doof doof music, beautiful vibe, wierd and interesting people and an array of visual delights and you have the rainbow serpent festival. Thousands of people come from everywhere, internationally and nationally, creating and becoming. It is truly a sight to see and something that should be experienced at least once in your lifetime.
Every year for the past five years we have been invited to run demonstrations and workshops at this festival.
In 2006, we decided to invite capoeira instructors from all around and have a big capoeira camp. Simon Le from Canberra, Tanja Samira and Chan Griffin from adelaide, Mestre Luizinho from brisbane, Monitor Lorem, Monitor Futa and Professor Vira Lata from Melbourne and Formado Nanjo and Aki from Japan. We had many workshops and demonstrations it rained it burnt it was windy and dusty, it was rainbow serpent!
