Awarded PROAC Circulation Dance 2017, Secretary State of Culture
Homage to Maestro Carlos Gomes, with excerpts from his operas.
Synopsis: This artistic work flows in the sense of breaking paradigms from the classic romantic to the contemporary urban. The urban culture, the modern young man, mixing and interacting intimately with the work of Carlos Gomes, transcending the feeling and living every moment, exhaling music through the pores of the interpreters, making the popular-classic and popular-classic, bringing expressions which are almost always distanced by (pre) concepts.

Rites of Passage
Curator Ismael Ivo | Dance Qualification Program
Synopsis: Invisible walls that we all recognize, but we choose not to see. Different perceptions of the same reality that exclude and differentiate equals. Social and cultural barriers that create tribes in search of an identity. We all experience innumerable metamorphoses that recreate our deep desires in the different rituals that reveal themselves inwardly or externally, potent or empty. Does life in this 'civilized society' lead to the emptying of the human being or self-knowledge?

Synopsis: Live fully, but recognize the fragments that build this fullness. Identify the differences, but equate them by glimpsing one internal reflection in the other. Memories that intertwine, fracture, shatter and build our Great Patchwork Quilt. In the midst of colorful scraps of races, images, techniques, smells and tastes; we dance our roots and who assists germinates the seeds of the next flaps.
