About

Shot Bio: Graduated since 2003 in Sound and Image, from the Oporto School of Arts of the Portuguese Catholic University (UCP). In 2003 she carried out an internship at the Company Ydreams (http://www.ydreams.com/), and in 2004 joined the production team of the Olhares de Outono International Digital Arts Festival, and worked as a researcher at the UCP's Research Centre for Art and Technology (CITAR), developing the structural content framework for the project New Orientations in Art and Technology (NOTA). From 2004 to 2006, she continued her studies at the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona), where she was awarded with a Master degree in Digital Arts. Currently she’s a Senior Lecturer at the School of Arts of the Portuguese Catholic University (http://artes.ucp.pt/); a Researcher at the Ethnomusicology Institute - Center for the Study of Music and Dance (INET-md), a collaborating researcher at CITAR and a Ph.D. candidate at the Dance department of the Faculty of Human Kinetics of the Universidade de Lisboa (ULisboa) in Lisbon, Portugal. In 2015 she became a founding member of the Association of Gesture Studies – iGesto. Her background of 14 years of dance training should also be mentioned, since it has been a starting point and a great influence on her artistic and research work over the years. It transformed her aesthetic perception of the world since a very early age. Interests: • Digital Arts, • Technologically Expanded Dance, • Performing Arts, • Video-dance, • Interdisciplinary art forms, • Gesture Analysis and Processing, • Interactive Systems, • Experimental Video Art, • Constrained Gesture, • Creative use of generative processes.
