Rodrigo Teixeira CaDA 2022

Creation by Rodrigo Teixeira


Following the support given to the choreographer Rodrigo Teixeira in 2021, and after the excellent results presented in previous editions of Quinzena de Dança de Almada, with the performance “Longue Marche”, in 2022 Ca.DA has planned to support his new creation project entitled “Paisagem” (Landscape), which crosses dance and moving image. This work will be developed in collaboration with the visual artist João Cristóvão Leitão.

Rodrigo Teixeira has a degree in dance from Escola Superior de Dança (2014-2017). He started his training in 2012, at the Asas de Palco school in Guimarães, and had a scholarship to the FOR-Dance Theatre course by choreographer Olga Roriz (2018-2020). As a creator and artistic director of PURGA.c, he presented “Queda Infinita” (2018-2019), a co-production with Casa das Artes de Felgueiras, “Voyage, Voyage” (2020), a project financed by Câmara Municipal de Lisboa, “Longue Marche”, financed by Direção Geral das Artes and Fundação GDA. Together with Maria Inês and Companhia Espaço Neutro, he co-created “Rampa”, “Bubble” and “Divines”, a trilogy presented in Sintra, Lisbon and Guimarães and, also in collaboration with Maria Inês, he was invited to choreograph the opening piece for Festival Guimarães NocNoc in 2017. In 2020, he was one of the artists invited by Coletivo SillySeason to integrate the curatorship All Tomorrow’s Parties which took place at Rua das Gaivotas 6 and which resulted in the solo “Rolero”, artistic object linked to issues of memory, reconstruction and legacy. Throughout his work he has tried to balance the languages ​​of dance and theatre. This balance comes from an intense research with all the artists who collaborate in his creations, ascribing the costumes, music, lights and scenery the same degree of importance as the movement. As a performer, he highlights works such as “Queda Infinita”, “Num Vale do Aqui” by Daniel Matos, “Other Another”, “Um Fio de Ar”, “Vasto” by Amélia Bentes, “La Plaza” by El Conde de Torrefiel, “Antes que Matem os Elefantes” by Olga Roriz, and “Habita-me” by Maria Inês, presented both nationally and internationally. He frequently collaborates with theatre companies in the roles of assistant to movement /choreography for theatrical performances.
