I am full time wife and fresh mother of a lovely boy... as well as Choreographer, Performer in Contemporary dance, Dance pedagogue and Cultural manager. Born in Brazil, my education includes a Bachelor (Diplom)  of Dance by  University of Campinas - UNICAMP(Brazil) and a Master Degree in Theater - Expanded Theater Program by Bern University of the Arts, HKB (Switzerland).

Recently awarded with  "Förderpreis für Choreografie" by TanzPlan Ost and Societé Suisse des Autors, and Associated Artist with TanzPlan Ost 2021/2022 I work mostly on individual authorial projects and in collaborative processes. 

I am an enthusiastic dancer who brings the beat and vivacity of my culture deep inside my heart, body and soul.  Specially in what concerns to teaching, my biggest motivation  is to spread the joy of dance in a way that people, of any age,  get in touch with their own inner vibrating energy and thus see the potentialities that arises and surround each one of us.

Living in St. Gallen (Switzerland) since 2016, I believe that we can always do more for Art and our society. Thinking on this, in 2017  I co-founded  the culture association "Basis 56" ,  in partnership with the visual artist, graphic designer and writer Mischa Herzog.



CREATION PROCESS

Being part of a creative process and going further in my studies and dance research allow me to get in contact with different ways of being, thinking, seeing, creating, flowing and relating. I am interested in the merging of the expressive language, in the enchantment, in the hybridisms of artistic expressions, in the dialogue with the audience, in the body that breaks into sweat, in the pulse, in what makes body, art and life so unique, always questioning and reflecting on contemporary issues and subjects that touch me in my daily life. 

CHAOS & BEAUTY

In my point of view, dance is about energy, synergy, flowing, and searching. It is about transforming something ordinary into the extraordinary; everyday, and, tap into the unknown. It is about taking risks and being out of your depth. It is about taking part of something that goes beyond the individual. Dance is more than just movement, it is the ability to see, to look, to listen, to love, to suffer, to boil, to be hurt and make mistakes. It is about to experience the breeze, the flesh, the light, the storm. It is about being insatiable. It is about to find the connection between Chaos and Beauty.
