Nuno Silva

Nuno Silva - AGEAS SIAF 2014 - Adrian Harris - Low res 2

Sensual contemporary dance, soul bearing Portuguese fado and a flaming gondola are the main ingredients in this fire and dance spectacular infused with the steamy atmosphere of Lisbon Old Quarter.

Known for his muscular physicality and fine singing, Nuno Silva is an individual artist with a career spanning contemporary dance (Henri Oguike, Luca Silvestrini and Javier de Frutos), classical opera (Mahogany Opera, Cork Opera) and West End musicals (Cabaret, The Light Princess).

“Is there no end to Nuno Silva’s talents? We saw him as an eloquent dancer with Henri Oguike Dance Company, and as the strutting gym Nazi in Protein Dance’s Dear Body he delivered the funniest movement-theatre performance of 2009. In Arthur Pita’s full-length work God’s Garden, Silva reveals himself as a fine singer of fado, the melancholy song-poetry of Portugal.” Luke Jennings, Guardian

With a distinctive choreographic signature, Dam Van Huynh is best known to contemporary dance audiences for repeatedly winning the Audience Prize in The Place Prize 2008. His career as an independent artist spans many countries and artistic platforms.

“Dam Van Huynh has found his own very stulised world, and has perfect the art of drawing an audience into it.

Guy Hoare is highly regarded as a lighting designer, working with theatre, opera and dance companies, his artistry is critically acclaimed on a regular basis.

Lightfires is art in light, smoke and fire.
