The artist:
Gustavo Ciríaco is a performing and visual artist living between Rio and Lisbon. He starts his career in Political Sciences and then drifts to dance and contextual works. He enjoys blending now and then with here and there and working transversally across fields and in a collaboratively mode. Dance, theater, video, story telling and urban actions are present in his pieces where the dimensions of the meeting become the inspirations for shared fictions and situations. In his works he dialogues with the historical, material and affective context one is immersed within in any given situation. In terms of art forms, Ciriaco’s work moves from multimedia staged conceptual work, through to urban walks and convivial open-air projects. Ciríaco has shown works in major national and international festivals, galleries and venues in Europe, Latin America, Asia and Middle East.
