Tales Frey

A transdisciplinary artist, lives and works between Brazil and Portugal and executes works supported by both visual and scenic arts. Ritual, body and performativity are mottoes of speculation both in his practical creations and in his academic research in the field of his formations (Graduation in Theater Direction by UFRJ in Brazil, Master in Art Theory and Criticism by the University of Porto in Portugal, PhD in Theatrical and Performative Studies by the University of Coimbra and post-doctorate in Arts from the University of Minho in Portugal). Some of his works permanently integrate public and private collections in institutions in South America, Central America and Europe.

 Estar a Par - Passo a Passo 

A video work featuring two pairs of shoes joined at the toes, and two determined dancers. This unusual accessory forces two bodies to face each other and dance and awkward waltz.
