Marco da Silva Ferreira
Marco da Silva Ferreira (*1986, Santa Maria de Feira) is dancer, choreographer and artistic director of Pensamento Avulso. Marco started his practice of the body through high performance swimming and by getting a degree in physiotherapy. Although he never used the degree in his professional life, it helped him to decide to focus on the body’s practice in the performing arts. His journey to becoming a professional choreographer was made in a self-taught way through dance styles with African-American influences that flowed in an urban context.
