Brésil - Os Fabullosos > Just Dance: Asphalt


Fast feet and fraternity in a fervid portrait of Brazilian footwork

London-based filmmakers Thomas Bryant and Gitanjali Patel capture Brazilian dance craze passinho in this documentary about dance troupe Os Fabullosos—four dancers based in Queimados, a municipality on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Here, Bryant and Patel offer some insight into their candid film: 
"Passinho is a footwork dance born in the baile funk parties of Rio de Janeiro's favelas. This film explores the path these four boys from Queimados forge for themselves as dancers, in the quest to establish passinho as a cultural reference for Brazil. 
“Passinho is a footwork dance born in the baile funk parties of Rio de Janeiro's favelas”
"Although Queimados is on the ‘asphalt'—a term used to denote the boundary between the formal city and the informal hillside favela communities—it shares many of the same social characteristics and cultural trends as favelas, as well as suffering from the same stigma."
