4 th Capoeira Angola Women Power Conference 2013
We attempt to draw attention to the role of women in capoeira angola and show examples of women leaders. Our goal is although 50% female and 50% male participants. We believe that the inclusion unconditionally is the best way to combat segregation. Our ambition is to hold the conference in collaboration with active women in the neighborhood, and who, through their leadership makes a difference. The conference is held with the a Somali women’s association, Creative Call, a local grassroots organization and Systrami, a girl group at Blå Huset in Tensta.

Contra Mestre Gege/ FICA
Maria Eugenia Poggi, born in Rio de Janeiro, started training Capoeira Angola under the guidance of Mestre Cobra Mansa in 1995 and was part of FICA when it was founded in 1996. Since then, she has participated in various international conferences; she was invited to participate in the 2003 Angoleiras event in Rio de Janeiro and the first Angoleiras Encounter in Europe in 2006, Cologne. She moved to Lima, Peru 2003 where she led workshops with different groups. Since two years ago she moved with her family to live in Salvador, Brazil and this year she had her title as a Contra Mestre. We are so happy to see Gege in Stockholm again for the third on time!

Contra Mestre Suzy / Grupo Vadiacao
Susanne Oesterreicher, born in Munich, started Capoeira 1989. She gets to know Capoeira Angola 1992 and decide to dedicate her self to the art. 1994 she organized the first Capoeira Angola Encounter in Europe together with Mestre Rosalvo and has since then doing a great initiative to introduce and establish Capoeira Angola in Europe. 1997 she founded Jangada; a capoeira- and dance academy in Berlin constructed on Brazilian traditions. Suzy received her title 2002 and the same year she was invited to the first FICA Women Conference in Seattle, USA. Without doubt Suzy has been a big inspiration for students in the whole world to confront difficulty and obstacles while learning the art of capoeira angola. This is the fifth time Suzy come to teach in Sweden.

As a Swedish pioneer she has practiced capoeira for 25 years with the goal of creating meeting places without limits in regards to age, gender or ethnicity.

FICA Stockholm in Tensta
Through a global network capoeira has spread across all continents, to people of all ages and from varying social backgrounds, where those who would otherwise be left without a public space and form of expression have earned both respect and recognition. Capoeira facilitates the exchange of traditional culture and folklore between locals, brings people of different backgrounds together and stimulates interaction and dialogue. The game can be said to be the fastest spreading sport in the world and has been dubbed one of the earth’s non-material wonders. Through the preservation of this oral tradition new, aware leaders are created. FICA Stockholm is since 2008 presenting Capoeira Angola for the citizens in Tensta as a substainibale tool for social change and crime prevention.

With a special thanks to the Cultural management of Stockholm / Stockholms Kulturförvaltning
