Oruro: Carnival of Legends

25th November

About the show

There are carnivals, and then there’s Oruro…

Joining a dance group in London leads Isabela and Dario on a captivating journey through Bolivia’s cultural tapestry to the mythical origins of the dazzling Oruro Carnival. This immersive tale weaves moments of discovery and revelation in with the contagious beats of Bolivian folk music as we venture through centuries of overlapping identities.

Be transported to the altiplano and beyond, where legends speak for themselves.

Join us from 17:30 for a bonus experience of Bolivia’s varied dances and costumes.
