Eros Volúsia's goal was to construct a national dance, a bailado based in samba and achieving a miscegenation of European, black, and indigenous mestizo cultural elements with echoes of the nationalist political ideology in the 1930s and 1940s, the Estado Novo. In the late 1990s, a new iconoclast, Luiz de Abreu, has revealed a different artistic and sociopolitical vision of how to make dance in and about Brazil.
