Banquete
 Banquet 2006
 Body, light, clothes, music and verb, which are the ingredients used to prepare the show’s recipe. Banquet is a raw and sample dish to eat with hands. Implicit things in the simplicity are secrets of this recipe. The choreography is poetry, combining the propriety of the movement with the peculiar capacity of the contemporary dance.
The principal point is the verb TO EAT. This word which is inspired by authors like as ANDRADE, Oswald; FREUD, Sigmund; RIBEIRO, João Ubaldo and so on, is directly connected with sexual and anthropophagic ambit in this spectacle. Scenes express the relationship, what do they do and talk about the others.
This spectacle was presented in Governador Valadares MG BR, Salvador BA BR, Estancia Climática de Caconde SP BR, Araçuaí and Ipatinga MG BR, Toulon France.

Oposto
  opposite 2004
In all the senses I think about opposition to one thing and others, considering the positive and negative sense that is the theme of this work. For that the work doesn’t follow a specific opposition, the choreography utilize stimulus the cold and hot temperature for create movements. To express cold temperature, the dancers represent mimic, dialogues like dancing phrases, and hot group the dancers represent senses like a melody of a musical instrument. To cold the movement is broken, accurate and angular to hot the movement is continuo, ambiguous and floppy. Like a war, the two groups dispute the scenic space creating frontiers. The choreography starts simple, easy, exact, and cold, ending complex, difficult, ambiguous and hot. Like everything in the universe, this work is considered the theory about entropy, where the hot group movement wins the history. In theater act, the work has a screen made with metal of rests by refrigerator and stove and six dancers. In performance act, the work is structured with scaffold, an ice block, fabric in kerosene, fire and two dancers.

Monologue of the Brazilian author Caio Fernando Abreu’s texts which narrate fictitious histories of three personages: a faun, a woman and a man. They have something in common, which is to fall in love. The faun talks about his heart, the woman is crazy remembering the childhood love and the man is sad because of a letter by his missed love.
