Dancer. Bernardo started his research in dance and contemporary art when he worked with Bruno Beltrão. His work explores the relationship of the body with technology, public spaces and socio-cultural barriers, having already created material for the programme Rumos, from Itau Cultural.
From his research – which investigates the impulses of the body that cause movement – Bernardo will develop workshops with communities in London and collaborate with other professional dancers from the English capital to create performances in places not intended for performances. In workshops, participants shall develop choreographies deriving from their repertoire and culture, but shall also explore possibilities beyond repertoire movements. Performances transform places temporarily creating new relationships between audience and venue.
