Performance-pedagogy artist and researcher from Porto Alegre - Brazil, based in Helsinki.


My performative work starts from the body as a site of possibility: a medium to challenge/re-imagine 

assumptions of culture and belonging. 

I structure performances, strategies, and processes to decolonize knowledge and pedagogy​​.

My Media and Performance education projects 

explore the intersections between aesthetics,

critical and political knowledge. 

 I focus on relationality and participation,

exploring our ability to sensibly perceive others,

blurring borders the individual and groups,

private and collective.
