Lua Carreira is the co-founder of EmFim-Associação do Artista and since 2022, she has been a resident artist at the Desvio space, where she began to develop her work in performance. She carried out the 2022 Performance Cycle, as a research between body and object, and in the same year premiered the pieces “Unmanned Space Probe” and “SAL”.
It was also in 2022 that she became part of the production team of Artist Runspace MONO.
Currently her creative work focuses on a multidisciplinary approach aimed at the deconstruction of the performative body through the exploration of new technologies and the exploration of new corporeal entities through the choreographic method.
