[Artist in Residence] Filipe Caldeira

Filipe Caldeira (Vila do Conde, 1982) starts studying object manipulation empirically in the year 2000, focusing on the technique that presents a raw quality strongly influenced by the Finnish circus. He develops a specific interest in the synergy between body and object, repositioning himself within the hierarchical relation between those two elements. Over the years of practice his interest moves away from technical virtuosity in favour of the immaterial, the body and the voice as autonomous triggers. His stance on circus, dance and theatre became the object of self-questioning, resulting in a hybrid language and a distorted virtuosity of a body that is shaped and misshapen with experience. His first steps as a professional author and performer take place in 2005. He is artist in residence supported by Circular Associação Cultural since 2015.
