I am Brazilian, born in the state of Rio de Janeiro. I have a degree in Dance Theory from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and I am currently a master's student in Archaeology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - National Museum.
I research a transdisciplinary relationship between Dance and Archaeology, in an investigation of a body that dances through materiality. I think of Experimental Archaeology as a possible path for my questions.
My master's research is in relation to dance representations in the Gopuras of the Nataraja temple in Chidambaram / Tamil Nadu - India.
