|Meet the UniShow Quadra Tour: Canadian Family, amazing driver, sound guy, Rob, Dustin and Katie.|
We were invited to Brazil to partner with a Canadian family who lives there part time, whom we’ve done events with in Northern Ontario in the past. Our initial connection to this family was their son-in-law Rob, whom we’ve toured with in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Albania and Egypt. Rob also joined this Brazil tour with his music and it was a great reunion to share a stage with him again to creatively proclaim the Good News.
Almost every community has a covered sports facility they call a quadra, with beautifully smooth cement surfaces, perfect for a UniShow. Most of our events were in these quadras, as we partnered with local churches in 15 different communities. Our organizer was very thorough in his preparation and even filled cracks in some quadra surfaces with cement before we arrived to make sure Dustin had as smooth of a riding area as possible. He also looked high and low for fuel for Dustin’s juggling torches and didn’t give up until he found a perfect fuel from a watch shop of all places, where it is used to clean watches.
Catholicism is very strong in these parts of Brazil. The Catholic church has a tight grip on people, keeping them religious and under human control. More than once, a Catholic event was scheduled at the exact same time as our UniShow, in order to prevent people from attending our event.
