Power Kids

Off to the Races

This workshop is inspired by Jonathas de Andrade's film O Levante (The Uprising) (2003), which features a rare racing event in the city of Recife, Brazil. After discussing the contrast between rural and urban cultures of Recife, we will create our own rubber-band powered horse-drawn carts out of wood, string and modelling clay. We will then re-enact the horse-drawn cart race from the film, racing our horses for the first-place prize of a trophy!
