Guilherme Botelho

Cie Alias

Brazilian-born Swiss choreographer, Guilherme Botelho started his dance career in Sao Paulo. He was later hired by the Grand Théâtre ballet in Geneva and spent ten years with them until he created his own company, Alias, in 1994. A keen observer of the paradoxes in our daily lives, the tensions that dwell in social relations and the questions that currently face the world, Botelho queries, through his creations, the reality of our existence and explores the major themes in the human condition. His shows seem to sound out the greatest depths in the human soul.
