Marriage, Zoe (2012) 'Capoeira and security: the view from upside-down.' openDemocracy/openSecurity.
Through an account of capoeira, the Brazilian dance-fight-game, we uncover two simultaneous stories of security: first, the gradual monopolisation of violence by the state; second, a somatic, lyrical representation of a history of violence, oppression and liberation.
