Getting Ready for the Carnival

Getting Ready for the Carnival
by Luisa Bianchi

A dancer from the Bissau carnival gets ready for the show (although all parades were banned due to the pandemic, traditional dances still took place in hidden places, reflecting the importance of traditions for these populations). The care in the clothing of this dancer, the creativity in combining simple cloth sheets, testify the innate aesthetic sense of this African population.
