The term "Chamada" literally means call. And when the Rochester Capoeira Center opens its doors on Friday, September 5, the "Chamada" is to see Afro-Brazilian inspired pen and ink works by local artist Jeffery Smith, and to see performances and demonstrations by the Rochester Capoeira Center. Capoeira is a dance-like art form that grew out of a martial art. To elude their masters' attention, African slaves in Brazil would disguise their fighting practices as a dance — leading to the creation of the fluid motions, flips, and kicks of Capoeira.

Chamada: An Afro-Brazilian Art and Capeoira Performance will be Friday, September 5, at the Rochester Capoeira Center, 34 Elton Street. 6 to 9 p.m.
