Brazilian-born dancer, choreographer and graphic artist, Simone Camargo has been a performer in some of the most important dance companies in Brazil with international projection, including Balé Teatro Guaíra (2000-2007), Quasar Cia de Dança (2007-2010) and Balé da Cidade de São Paulo (2011 and 2013-2016). In Germany, she was a dancer at Staatstheater Nürnberg (2019-2020) and at the mixed ability Forward Dance Company (2020-2021). 

During her more than 20 years of professional experience, she has sought to cross distinct aesthetics, aiming to nourish herself with different expressive possibilities through dance. With the aim of stepping back from her practice and acquiring new references, she is pursuing a parallel academic path in France, at the Master in Dance at the University of Paris 8 (2012-2014), and the Master in Artistic Creation at the University of Grenoble Alpes (2018-2021).

Her choreographic creations take place mainly in the companies Balé Teatro Guaíra (2007), Quasar Jovem Cia de Dança (2009), Balé da Cidade de São Paulo (2014) and Curitiba Cia de Dança (2018). Simone uses the body as an expressive power and as an instrument to construct her poetic discourse. Thus, she considers the work on the quality of movement, as the main resource in the construction of the meaning of the choreographic work, and as a central element in the development of the creative process. In her creative practice, Simone deals with issues of humanity that can be expressed and questioned through the body. She is also interested in the relationship between dance and other artistic manifestations, particularly with regard to the materials and contexts of performance, as well as the political issues involved in the act of artistic creation.

Her pedagogical practice is based on her multiple experiences in the choreographic field, as well as on her constant research on expressivity in dance.  Simone is currently developing the Speaking Bodies project, a pedagogical project focused on the expressive skills of dancers. Her long and rich experience serves as the basis for the development of the methodology, as well as the deepening of the analysis of these tools in the academic context. This deepening is mainly realized in her studies of somatic techniques and movement analysis at the University of Paris 8, and also in her research on dance performance practices, conducted within the framework of the Master in Artistic Creation at the University of Grenoble Alpes.
