Biographical note

Teresa Fradique (born in Lisbon, 1971) is an anthropologist, professor and researcher in the fields of anthropology of the arts and performance. Her work crosses ethnographic research with critical reflection and artistic projects in the fields of the visual arts, theatre, design and urban cultures. She conducted fieldwork and research on rap music, youth culture and national identity in post-colonial Portugal, which resulted in the publication of the book “Fixar o Movimento: Representações da Música Rap em Portugal” (2003). She is currently a researcher at CRIA and assistant professor at the Arts and Design Superior School of Caldas da Rainha, where she was involved in the coordination, until 2010, of a Master in Theatre. She works as a consultant of critical monitoring of artistic projects in the fields of performance and visual arts. She concluded her doctoral thesis on contemporary theatre and the work with non-professional actors and is currently developing research interests that radicalise the debate on the fluidity of contemporary cultural and artistic practices.
