Dancing in the Dark - 26 Nov 2013
Joao Kanoa, a blind capoeira teacher who lives in the Fallet favela of Rio de Janeiro lost his sight 17 years ago after a change in temperature at a cold storage facility where he worked damaged his retinas. Though the accident robbed him of his vision, it did not stop him teaching the dynamic art of capoeira – a Brazilian blend of dance and martial arts.
