Pedro’s Bio

I have grown up in China and have danced since I was a kid. At 14 years old I choreographed my first “full evening” performance for 30 dancers – it was called “Dancing the Dream”. Graduated by the National Conservatory of Portugal, where I gained my classical technique background, I danced in companies before deciding to found my own – I thought “Everyone else is doing it, so why can’t I?”. As Artistic Director of Amalgama Dance Company for 7 years, I started to introduce the somatic approach in my creative processes. Being a researcher of Movement and Contact Improvisation, I kept on directing projects, retreats and gatherings (including Arrábida Dance Labs) adding today more than twenty years of professional experience as a dancer, teacher and choreographer. Focused on the theme “Self Awareness for the Cohesion of the Collective Energy Field”, I believe that dance is a liberating tool for embodied interactions.
