Marlene Monteiro Freitas was born in Cabo Verde where she was co-founder and member of the dance group Compass. She studied at P.A.R.T.S. (Brussels), at E.S.D. and at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (Lisbon). Some of her creations includes Of ivory and flesh – statues also suffer, Paradise – private collection, (M)imosa, a project developed with Trajal Harell, François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea and Guintche. The common denominator of these works is openness and intensity. (M)imosa was presented at Oslo Internasjonale Teaterfestival 2014.
