Black, white and Amerindian served as inspiration for the scenography of Recife’s Carnival this year. Of the language, the gestural has been highlighted, along with manual traces of xilogravura, unexpected textures and forms, valuing the roots and mixture of Brazilian people. The special guests, maestro Spok and the hundred-year old Frevo Club Bola de Ouro, also are part of the decoration.
For 15 years now, Carlos Augusto Lira and his time have been responsible for it. This year, the work was done by two illustrators, Bel Andrade Lima and David Alfonso, coordinated by the architect Eduardo Lira.
