Arlene Phillips stages Brazilian dance show for Edinburgh Festival


More shows are being announced for this summer’s Edinburgh Festival.

One of the most unusual is a production of sensual dance performed by Brazil’s most thrilling new company and fronted by some familiar British faces.

Brazouka is being performed in the Main Hall of the Assembly Hall, Mound Place, between July 31 and August 26.

Pamela Stephenson Connolly, Arlene Phillips and Harley Medcalf, founder of Burn the Floor, are producing the show, which is performed by Braz Dos Santos.

This unique dance-drama is being directed by world-famous choreographer Arlene Phillips.

Pamela Stephenson Connolly is the driving force, writer and inspiration behind Brazouka.

Shortly after her stint in the final of BBC’s mega-hit Strictly Come Dancing, her pursuit to find the real passion in dancing led her to Brazil, where she studied a range of dance styles.

Following the inaugural season at the Fringe, Brazouka will then go worldwide, moving to the Mandela Theatre in Johannesburg, South Africa, from October 3-19, before a tour of Australia visiting Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast, with further dates to be announced.
