Luis Miguel Félix

(Portugal). Has most recently been developing his role as a performer with specific choreographers whose work and processes he considers unique and pertinent in the contemporary performance context. He is currently performing in the following pieces: Blue by Juan Dominguez, Undertone by Sidney Leoni, Low Pieces by Xavier Le Roy and in the collaborative project Oedipus, my foot directed by Jan Ritsema. As a choreographer his work confronts ways in which performance is witnessed and experienced by both the performer and spectator. Addressing these very concerns, he is currently collaborating with Sidney Leoni on the project War of Fictions, which premieres in September 2011.
He graduated with a diploma in Theatre (Acting) from Esmae in Porto in 2006, and was a recipient of the danceWEB scholarship in 2007. He attended the dance program ex.e.rce at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier in 2008, where he initiated the online project Wedance.
