André Uerba is a Performer, Choreographer and Filmmaker born in Lisbon. Based in Berlin since 2013, he holds an MA in Arts, Solo/ Dance/ Authorship at HZT Berlin (2015). His projects are united by a particular interest in the poetics that emerge within a slower frame of realisation, where the “meaning” is revealed at another pace. Since 2018 his research is focused within the potentialities of slowness, touch and intimacy in a performative context. In 2018 with the support of the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe and Espaço do Tempo (PT) he developed the project “Burn Time”, presented in Portugal, Germany, Sweden, Spain and Slovenia. In 2019 he developed “Pool of Emotions”, an event and gathering that researches the relation between intimacy and performing arts. Between 2019 and 2020 he started “Fire Starter”, a project where the performers negotiate touch with the audience and vice versa. During a four weeks residency at radialsystem in 2021, Uerba developed the film “Inviting Moments of Stillness”. Later in 2021 he developed the project “A hole the size of your touch”, presented in the frame of BoCA - Biennial of Contemporary Arts (PT). Since 2021 he is a bodyworker in training from the Institute for Somatic Learning, Sexuality and Bodywork (ISB Berlin).
