About me

I am a lighting designer that creates lighting for theater and architecture, pursuing visual narratives both when designing light for space and for stage. 

Theater taught me how to develop concepts through time and the creation of spaces using light as an instrument, transforming them into other spaces or even into characters inside one narrative. Architecture told me to transform the fantastic into reality and how to make lighting for a subject that crosses spaces and inhabits it in the most unexpected ways. Architecture gives you a constant exercise to design for live. Theater takes the design from it. 

I have studied in Brasília (Universidade de Brasília), Barcelona(Instituto Europeo di Diseño) and Copenhage(Aalborg University). I am a Berlin based artist and I have worked with architecture lighting in offices like Lichtvision, Buro Happold and currently with iart, in Switzerland. 

In Theater I have toured in dozens of Brazilian cities with different plays, and, most of all, in unconventional spaces like metro stations, gymnasiums, boats and art galleries. In Berlin I have been working mostly with decolonial and anti racist thematics, in spaces like Ballhaus Naunynstraße, Ufer studios, HAU 1, 2 and 4, Ballhaus Ost, Gropis Bau, Delphi, Sophiensaele, among others. 

My labor grounds the research of the places in between theater and architecture, art and technical knowledge, nature and culture, tangible and non tangible. I am a visual storyteller and I bring light to people, their bodies, stories and spaces from thoughts to life.
