Book : A morte de Besouro Mangangá
The Death of Besouro Mangangá is a fascinating work not only for the profile of his attractive and creative narrative, but also for his exciting character. This character is perceived both by the mishaps faced by Besouro along the "stories of a life", be they inside or outside the capoeira, but mainly by the understanding of the same about the events. In this sense, this work through the known, penetrates the unknown in the form of ideas and "experiences" sought in the deep memory of the soul of Besouro Mangangá; living legend and at the same time a myth embedded in the imagination of capoeiristas and in the symbolic heart of capoeira.
Mestre Chitãozinho is a historian, philosopher and writer with several written works. Attentive to a profile of historical and philosophical-psychological approach, he tries to perceive the relations between academic knowledge and the knowledge intertwined in the popular philosophy of capoeira. Through the research and own experiences with 30 years of capoeiristicas experiences, it seeks to penetrate the causes of the symbolic or objective actions in the roda and in the game of capoeira; in order to arrive at a broader understanding of the psycho-logical-emotional and corporal language present in it.
