Always in motion, I am in a never-ending quest for stillness.

Performance maker, actor and presenter, I think and create performance actions to transform. I started training theatre in Brazil and went into academic studies in Acting at the Federal University of Bahia before moving to the UK in 2011 to complete an MA in Performance Making at Goldsmiths, University of London.

My work stands between theatre, dance, action and game; it explores the body and the space as essential tools in creating meaning and playing with perspective. The core of my work is the encounter with the audience; through a set of rules I propose an active interplay that leaves space for observation and personal interpretation.
