Geraldo Si began his dance career in 1981 with Pantanaliadança. In São Paulo, he worked as dancer and actor with Antonio Abujamra, Geraldo Thomas, Penha de Souza, the Teatro Brasileiro de Dança, Marzipan Dance Cia amongst others.
In 1990 Si came to Germany to join the Wuppertaler Tanztheater led by Pina Bausch, where he danced as a soloist for four years. Subsequently he collaborated with Raimund Hoghe (“Geraldos solo” in 1996 and “Tanzgeschichten” in 2003), Stephanie Thiersch, Healing Theatre Köln, rodolpho leoni dance, Vera Sander Art Connect and Cocoondance.
In 1996 Si founded x.x.y. theater in Wuppertal and directed several of its productions.
He is also artistic director of Sommertanz Junge Talente (www.sommertanz.de), that was a pilotscheme from the Kunststiftung NRW from 2003 till 2005.
Inspired by the collaboration with Suprapto Suryodarmo, for the past years Geraldo Si has focused most of his work on improvisation and the concept of “growing through movement”. In 2002 he initiated an on going series of events „SichtLaut“. On these performance evening dancers, actors and musicians experiment within the borders of improvisation.
Si also regularly gives workshops for improvisation in Europe, Asia and South America.
