I've always written poems and short stories, so by that time I decided to change my focus in theatre from music to text. My first play "Máscara Preta" was performed by the Grupo Griot in the fringe of the Curitiba International Theatre Festival, in 2002.
In 2004, I moved to London and then to Paris, where I studied literature in the Université de Paris VIII. In 2005 I moved back to São Paulo, where I finished (in 2006) my doctorate in French Literature, with a thesis on french writer, film maker and playwright Marguerite Duras and the role of music in her work. Since 2007, I'm working on a film project, with the support of the State of São Paulo, a documentary that investigates the body in the context of anorexia.
Today, I'm part of the artist collective As Rutes, which performs interventions in urban contexts, particularly in São Paulo, using techniques of clowns, storytelling and visual arts.
Finally, I write for www.futepoca.com.br - Futebol, Política e Cachaça (Football, Politics and Cachaca), a blog that won the prize of best brazilian sports blog in 2007! And we are now competing for the iBest prize in the same category.
A brief description of series “PROCESS” by Sang-Taek Oh
The principals engraved in my work lie in the modern society’s insatiable hunger for capitalism and material pursue of gain along with the isolation of humanism and the feeling of loss in the greater social system as a whole. However, longing for life in the midst of such chaos sheds the hypocritical aspects of humans.
The aspiration in the use of such subjects in my work is to substantiate the ways that modern people accept the given life circumstances and their desire for living. The title “PROCESS” symbolizes the embedment of reality in the life courses and its destined derivatives of idealization, and its direct and or indirect intuitive insight of human in regard to the nature.
