The Toronto Dance Community Love-In says
Vortex Body

In this class we explore the connections between contemporary and urban dance techniques and languages.

Based on movement in constant search for the meaning and value of dance, resulting in a mutant and abstract form, inspired by rhythm, body dynamics and mind states.

Born in 1986 in Santa Maria da Feira, Marco has a degree in Physical Therapy. He is a professional dancer since 2008 and has worked with choreographers such as André Mesquita, Hofesh Shechter, Sylvia Rijmer, Tiago Guedes, Victor Hugo Pontes, Paulo Ribeiro and others. As a choreographer, he premiered his first work Nevoeiro 21 in 2012. Since then he premiered the awarded piece Replic…eplic…eplic, a site-specific solo dance work at Mais Imaginarius; Through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault, a co-creation with Mara Andrade; Land(e)scape (Imaginarius 2014) a multidisciplinary piece in collaboration with Ana Guedes (sound architecture) and Marta Angelozzi (visual arts); Hu(r)mano (2014) was an outstanding work in the artistic scene and projected the artist in the international circuit, already counting on a vast national and international tour. In 2015, and with this piece, he received the Young Creators Award and joined the Aerowaves Priority Companies platform, a hub for the discovery of dance in Europe. At the same time, he was the Assistant Choreographer of the theatre plays Hamlet (2014) by Mala Voadora and Veraneantes (2017) by Nuno Cardoso; He was artistic assistant to Victor Hugo Pontes in the creations Se Alguma Vez Precisares da Minha Vida, Vem e Toma-a and Carnaval (both from 2016).
