AboutCASA 2012 is delighted to present our very first Open CASA, a chance to celebrate London's Latin American community arts scene with the amazing people who keep Latin American culture blossoming all year round.
Join us as we open our doors and get ready for a night of the sounds, sights and flavours of London's vibrant Latin American community. We start at 6pm with the opening of Collectivo Entre las Piernas's exhibition, and then there'll be a wealth of exciting activities on offer to watch and take part in including sizzling dance courtesy of the London School of Samba, Brazilian martial arts with Centro Cultural Senzala de Capoeira, dance theatre with Expresion Inka, children's theatre from Esforal and forum theatre with Luna Playback. And if that wasn't enough, there'll be some fantastic live music from London's favourite folklore band Cumbé and DJ Mr Boogie a.k.a The Vinyl Junkie (Soulsa/Shoreditch) and more!
As a centerpiece for the night we will be hosting a communal dinner. OPEN CASA is completely free but if you want to join us for the dinner, please bring a dish of your favourite food (and the stories behind it) to share. And bring friends, family and loved ones to share in the atmosphere too. We've said it before. We'll say it again. Our CASA is your CASA.
