Blessed for another opportunity shooting with Klay Thompson @klaythompson for The Space Jam @spacejammovie a couple years ago. It was around the Batizado time so many of our capoeira family was in town from and got to join our Capoeira Batuque family for this! Unfortunately, our scene didn’t make it in the Final Cut, as in common in Hollywood but we are so grateful for the opportunity and experience. Another one in the books!

So proud of these little capoeiristas working hard on their conditioning and strengthening 💪🏽

Capoeira is dynamic, fun and challenging. They build self confidence while staying humble and supporting one another.

It’s beautiful witnessing the next generation find community and navigate being a conscious member within their chosen community.

Tibi Tire is a performance event and fundraiser for artist Reva Santo as she cultivates community support to bring two very important and complementary projects to life.

In the artist’s spiritual practice, Ifa, Tibi Tire is an expression that says ‘good and bad come together.’ Similar to the concept of yin/yang, Tibi Tire expresses that the nature of the universe is duality--positive and negative will always coexist. Knowing this, how do we pull from the positive while still honoring the challenges and difficulties that life presents? How do we alchemize our lives?

The theme will be explored through a range of performances including a Makélé sound bath, movement reflection, poetry, film screening, and live music.


Reva's upcoming parallel creative projects: Joseph X and Growing Pains, differ in medium and in subject matter, but serve a meaningful healing function when considered as a collectively moving whole. Together they are able to hold difficult 'shadow' realities while providing hope, healing, and transformation.

Join us in celebrating and uplifting Reva as she brings in her next year of life!
