Holder of a degree in Sculpture by the Faculty of Fine-Arts of the University of Lisbon and a post-graduation in Contemporary Art by the Catholic University of Portugal, she also has training in dance, having attended the Higher School of Dance in Lisbon (2003/2004) and the Choreographic Research and Creation Course of ForumDança (Porto edition, 2003). The inter and transdisciplinary background has supported the writing of published and unpublished essays and academic articles on subjects related to the visual and performative arts. As part of her artistic research, she joined the project Topias Urbanas (commissioned by Teatro Municipal Maria Matos, Lisbon) and is one of the resident collaborators of AND I Research Centre for Art-Thinking & Politics of Togetherness, working together with artist, anthropologist and founder Fernanda Eugénio in one of the lines of research - Metalogue & Co-Operation. Five editions of their collaborative Metalogue Series took place since 2015, a series of situated and performative conversations that can result in forms as diverse as a card game, a lecture-performance written in real time or a task-oriented performance in a garden.
