Hu(r)mano

Hu(r)mano

Hu(r)mano

An active player on the burgeoning Portuguese dance scene, Marco da Silva Ferreira worked with artists such as André Mesquita, Hofesh Schechter, Sylvia Rijmer, Tiago Guedes and Hugo Pontes, before launching into choreography himself. Hu(r)mano, his sixth piece, has earned him a nomination for Best Young Portuguese Artist of 2015. Inspired by an urban dance vocabulary, he plays with the tension between the "human me" and the "urban we." Four bodies come together — strong and confident in their intrinsic individuality. But ever building posturing and looks gradually morph into a collective relationship of surprising beauty. Oscillating between alienation and connection, the foursome unpretentiously yields to various stages of transformation.
