Guilherme Garrido

Guilherme artistic work and education are connected to dance, choreography and fine arts.

He is interested in performance as a story telling through becoming a showman disguised in contemporary dance. His artistic work always contains a warm and subversive humor. Gui is occupied with how the body and movement can give associations to films, hero figures, shows or rock concerts. At the same time he is interested in interweaving the fragility and intimacy of relationships on stage.

Since October 2007 Gui has been touring all around Europe with his collaborator Pieter Ampe. His current project is the quartet “a coming community” with Pieter Ampe, Nuno Lucas and Herman Heisig.

As a dancer Gui worked for Maria Clara Villa-Lobos in “Super!” (BE), for Ibrahim Quraishi, “My Private Himalaya”(EUA/NL) and for Tommy Noonan/ PVC company Stadttheater Freiburg in “Tout Court” (G) and made a duet with Antonio Pedro Lopes in “I WANT MORE FANS YOU WANT MORE STAGE”.

Gui has worked as a curator of “Show Rooms” within the frame of the annual Dance Festival “ A Fabrica” (Porto) and ran a research space called 555 also in Porto, Portugal. In the summer of 2008 he was the co-artistic director of the project Skite/Sweet and Tender Collaborations Porto 2008, together with António Pedro Lopes and Jean Marc-Adolphe.
