Márcio is interested in how our ability to care can form and inform the systems we create to live in. And how this ability takes physical shape to design our interfaces through the ways we understand connection. Having a degenerative diseases called Retinitis Pigmentosa which causes progressive loss of peripheral vision and consequently blindness, Márcio often stumble into zones where the capacities to move, to understand, to sense, to feel are drastically put in question by a demand on trust in a sense of connection, specially while dancing, or walking in deamed light.  

Together with DEEPER F. Collective (HU) and A Bela Associação (PT), launched the digital publication CARE WHERE? Zine and CARE - Activism, Art and Electronic Music gatherings, focus on how we build and transform our large community through the chain of our immediate affections. Márcio also works as a freelance dancer for Hodworks (HU), CRANKY BODIES/a company (DE) and Meg Stuart/ Damaged Goods (BE/DE).In the past he had also collaborated with Benoit Lachambre, Sara Shelton Mann, Mark Thompkins and Keith Henessy. 


Inventiveness at the limits of sight

The more Im outdoors, the more exposed I am to the nature of my eyesight, bits of it are confronting, because I become aware of my own timing and the increasing loss of resolution in the world I am able to see. While dancing, on an improvisation with other artists, I have notice that it is becoming more challenging to connect with what happens on space and therefor to offer contributions to the event. Mostly because I have been loosing visual references and cues much faster than before, making me feel lost, as if my perception of movement would get slower, and probably it is, since my periphery vision gets lower and movement perception has a lot to do with rod cells… Lately only physical touch, having the ground as a major reference that implies gravity and sky,  seen to be giving me the necessary coordinates so to understand direction, or action. Maybe being outdoors is a way of keep touching the world as an attempt of perpetuating its recognition to my senses, so I would never loose it, and never get lost for too long.


Creative decisions are always taken collaboratively, they are dependent on contexts, opportunities and environments.

Creative worlds are never build out of things but out of relationships. 

Here I list some of my long lasting collaborations. For a complete list of works, check "chronology".

Marcio and Ivan sit naked in front of each other. They have many wood sticks balancing between their bodies. Their foreheads try to touch each other, but there is a block of wood in between. they have closed eyes. A hand of a tird person places one more wood stick into the image.
