Xiré @ Eccles Blackbox Theater
Nov 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Xiré @ Eccles Blackbox Theater

Samba Fogo and George Edgar Brown Present Xiré

Xiré (she-reh) is an exciting new collaboration between local composer George
Edgar Brown and Samba Fogo. Premiering original compositions by Brown, coupled with choreography by Samba Fogo Artistic Director Lorin Hansen, Xiré is a folkloric adventure featuring an original score of incendiary Afro-Brazilian rhythms and dance combined with the smooth sound of traditional chamber orchestra and mixed vocal quartet.
Xiré is a Yorùbá word that means “dance” or “dance circle.” In Brazil it is used to
describe the songs and dances of the Orixá (o-ree-sha), nature spirits found in
West African and African diasporic culture. With the forced movement of Africans to
Brazil by Portuguese colonizers, the Orixá traveled also to the New World, surviving
in part under the guise of Catholicism, as each Orixá was syncretised with a specific
Catholic Saint. In the Brazilian religious tradition of Candomblé today, each Orixá is venerated through rich rhythms, songs, and dances representative of their distinct energy and characteristics. The Orixá and their wealth of tradition have continued to thrive to today – despite centuries of stigma and oppression – as an integral part of Brazil’s vibrant culture and artistic legacy.

This live music and dance concert will take audiences on a journey, visiting sixteen
unique Orixá through sixteen original pieces. Brown has paired Afro-Brazilian
Candomblé rhythms with a traditional classical aesthetic – string quintet and vocal
quartet – to blend both African and European influences with ancient and modern
expressions. Brown’s compositions will be augmented by dancers portraying each
Orixá, in ornate traditional costuming.

Come enjoy this unique, creative blend of culture, sound, and movement on
November 15 & 16 at 7:00pm at the Eccles Blackbox Theater. The evening will open with an
optional pre-reception “Talk Forward” with the composer and choreographer. In this
reception, Brown and Hansen will speak about the process of creating Xiré and give
insight into the show’s rhythms and dances, exploring their meaning and
significance inside the rich traditions that inspire this concert.

Tickets to Xiré are $20 for general public and $18 for students. Tickets are available
online at artsaltlake.org, at all ArtTix locations, or by calling 801-355-ARTS. This
event is recommended for ages 8+. No babes in arms. Content is suitable for all
ages. This presentation of Xiré is supported by the ZAP (Zoo, Arts & Parks)
Program, the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, and the Salt Lake Arts Council.
