- DAS Choreography
Mario Lopes, born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is a choreographer and articulator.
With more than 15 choreographic works performed in Brazil, Germany, France, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay, Austria, Switzerland and Finland, he has lately been developing the last part of his triology “Movimento” in collaboration with artists in Sao Paulo, Munich, Maputo, Helsinki and Lyon. "Movimento III – celebration, post-tsunami foams” premiered this year as a film at the Triennal Frestas for Contemporary Art in Brazil and embraces the concept of Afrotranstopy. Since 2008 Mario Lopes has articulated the PlattformPLUS that collectively organizes projects to promote artistic encounter and mobile residencies, such as veiculoSUR. 2004 Mario founded a non-profit association, Humanizavida, with the goal of humanizing spaces in health and education through the arts. Since 2009 he works as a cultural articulator focusing on the promotion and circulation of works and projects that seek social transformation.
