Fernando Belfiore-The Netherlands.
20:30 (45’) ‘Panos Solomonides’ Cultural Centre.
AL13FB<3 investigates the idea of body-sculpture. Fernando (per)forms an encounter with elements to construct physical experiences, body states and retranslates emotions. While leading his audience through poetic and futuristic worlds, he explores the potential of transformation and let the body unfold new materiality. Belfiore reshapes the environment as an alchemic relation of re-creation and renewal.
Fernando Belfiore is a choreographer, performer and teacher based in Amsterdam. He graduated from SNDO in 2011 (School for New Dance Development – Amsterdam School of The Arts). Before moving to Europe he studied Theatre at Sao Paolo University. He has performed in projects by Deborah Hay, Jeremy Wade, Ann Liv Young, Ibrahim Quraishi and Miet Warlop. As a choreographer, Belfiore has presented his work in festivals and venues in many European countries, Brazil and China. His graduation work, The miserable thing, was nominated for the ITS Festival Choreography Award and received the Best Direction award at ACT Festival in Spain in 2012.
He has been Artist In Residence at Dansmakers Amsterdam since 2011, where he made his solo You Must with the dramaturgic collaboration of Ivo Dimchev and .whatdofinallyshare., which was selected by Aerowaves in 2013. That same year he created supernatural with Florentina Holzinger, which was performed at Nuit Blanche/SSBA-Salon Stadschouwnburg.
In addition to his recent solo AL13FB<3, Fernando is also touring his new group performance D3US/X\M4CHIN4. He is a regular teacher of movement research at SNDO and is a guest artist at International Choreographic Art Centre (ICK). Fernando’s work is also supported by Work Space Brussel.
