I belongs to the generation of choreographers that emerged towards the end of the 1980s in Portugal and who, in the sequence of the American post-modern movement as well as the movements of the French and Belgian Nouvelle Danse, gave rise to the Nova Dança Portuguesa [New Portuguese Dance]. A large part of my formation was carried out between Lisbon, New York and Berlin, after which I joined the Dance Company of Lisbon (86-88) and the Gulbenkian Ballet (89-90). My works are regularly presented across Europe, the USA, Canada and South America. From 1999 onwards I have shifted the gravity centre of my activity towards a territory of crossroads between theory and practice and between the arts and sciences, where research and experimentation have become the structural axis. It is in this context that I started the systematization of the method of “Real Time Composition” which supports and determines all of my activity as an artist, pedagogue or researcher, and which has led me to direct workshops and give lectures in several national and international universities and schools.
