Brother is choreographed by a constant mimicry between the performers that are the generators of movement, behaviors and patterns. Non-verbal vocabulary appears and over time, it becomes regenerated and transformed by the individual commitment or unlocker manifestations. Movable bridges emerge and fade away between the now and the faraway. At the macroscale, it is a thought about heritage, memory, codes, learning and transmission processes.

Born in Santa Maria da Feira, Marco began his dance career in 2004. Since then he has worked with: Companhia de Dança do Norte; Companhia Tok’art in Made in time (2011) and You never know how things are going to come together (2012); Companhia Instável in Fuga sem fim (2011).
