I’ve been formally trained as a classical guitarist very early in my life, later diving into voice work and quickly integrating dance and movement into my creative practices. Since 2007 I’ve been investigating the possibilities of voice beyond speech and song with a focus on improvisation as both a creative and interactive approach to performance. I’ve had the opportunity to further develop my research through the process of getting an MA and PhD degrees in Literary Theory from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (Brazil), where I also taught Voice and Movement at the Drama/Dance department as a temporary teacher. Since 2011, as a member of Coletivo Lugar Comum (independent collective based in Recife, Brazil), I’ve been experimenting with interdisciplinary performance in public spaces and collaborative creative practices. For the past 6 years I’ve also been intensely committed to the discipline of Authentic Movement (under the supervision of Soraya Jorge, former pupil of Janet Adler and introducer of the discipline in Brazil) and Contact Improvisation (having studied with teachers from various nationalities/backgrounds and helping organize workshops and festivals throughout Brazil).
