Rio de Janeiro, February 2013. The most famous carnival is about to begin! Dancers dressed with lead glass and feathers and fevered percussionists enter the most famous avenue of the samba in front of millions of viewers. Is the usual folklore seen a hundred times on TV? No: tonight dancers and musicians wear a plastic card around their neck with their photo ID, their name and address, they measure no more than a meter and thirty centimeters and are all… children!
