Leonardo Rodrigues is a Brazilian performer, choreographer and arts educator born in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Originally he was educated in computer programming and classical ballet at the Ballet Baiano de Tênis. Living in a town with mystical history and lore inspired his way to look at art. He started his international and professional career with the theatre company BTCA (Balé Teatro Castro Alves) at the age of 17, working then in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Leonardo has collaborated over several years with distinctive state theatres and as a freelancer in Germany. Between 2004 and 2008 he worked under the direction of Daniela Kurz, which stoked his interest in the fusion of dance theatre and politics. Leonardo also draws inspiration from Peter Brook, Théâtre du Soleil and acting directors such as Yoshi Oida and William Nadylam, which motivated him to choreograph pieces for the state theatre and Neues Museum in Nuremberg. Other choreographers that Leonardo has worked with and has been inspired by are Rui Horta, Stjin Celis, André Gingras, Jorma Elo, Lionel Roche, Jorge Silva, Luiz Arrieta. He is experienced in various dance techniques as well as in assisting and directing rehearsals for professional artists. He maintains a special focus on somatic approaches and is taking part in the MA CoDE program since April 2015 in Frankfurt to further his skills in teaching, performing, and choreographing.
