Notation, Urban Design


The author attended Ginasiano Dance School in Porto, Portugal where she studied contemporary and classical Dance , and ESAP (College of Arts, Porto) where she graduated in Architecture. Seeking to congregate her experiences in architecture and dance, she developed her graduation thesis on Notation: Architecture and Dance. After graduation, she was invited to join two art research centers, Centro de Estudos Arnaldo Araújo and Instituto de História da Arte, as a researcher. As an architect, she worked in two offices of architecture - Noventa Graus and Off 4- for two years, on a project for the Center for Performing Arts in Portalegre, and on a contest for the Music Conservatory in Coimbra, among other projects. Simultaneously, she has worked with Kale Dance Company and Círculo Portuense de Opera, in several dance and opera performances, either as a dancer or a stage assistant director. For three years now, she has also taught young children at Ginasiano Dance School developing Expressões, a project that aims to develop the individual through Art in an altogether involvement with movement expression, visual arts, music and drama. The text that follows is a slightly revised and edited version of a paper presented at the international symposion on "Globalization and Local Identity," organized jointly by the World Society for Ekistics and the University of Shiga Prefecture in Hikone, Japan, 19-24 September, 2005.
