Belo Horizonte –
Minas Gerais, Brazil
Raquel Cavalcanti is a Brazilian dancer, improviser, dance instructor, and AT teacher. In 1999, she graduated from the Matthews school (IRDEAT) in New York (USA). After living and working in NYC for over 15 years, she returned to Brazil to teach dance and the AT at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in a tenure-track position.
She is currently working on her PhD at State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she is investigating the possible relationships between AT principles, dance, and teaching in an inventive, non-traditional, and non-hierarchical way. In that sense, the works of Paulo Freire, Virginia Kastrup, bell hooks, and Jacques Rancière have been invaluable.
Raquel, the mother of two beautiful young women, loves baking long-fermented bread and taking care of her plants. It is her hope that Lula will be their next president this year.
