Holders of parental responsibilities or guardians have the prerogative to exercise their rights over the personal data of minors under similar conditions to those of data subjects.


Personal data may be of a more sensitive nature in certain situations, classified by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as "special categories of data", which include, among others, health data.

The processing associated with special categories of data deserves increased protection in the GDPR and is subject to specific technical and organizational safeguards. In this sense, the addition of documentation that incorporates special categories of data should only be carried out when such data appear as instructive or optional documents in the forms made available and advertised by Ágora.

Ágora uses a set of technologies, tools and security procedures, making the best efforts to protect personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.


Ágora allows, at the request of its holder, access, rectification, limitation of treatment and erasure of personal data. The data subject also has the right to object to the processing of his/her personal data.

If the use of personal data is based on consent, the data subject has the right to withdraw it, without compromising the validity of the data processing carried out until that moment.

Ágora's Data Protection Officer ( can always be contacted to clarify all questions related to the processing of personal data and exercise of rights as a holder of personal data.

Right to erasure of personal data or "right to be forgotten" – right to request the erasure of your personal data, if there are no legal grounds or public interest that justify the conservation of that personal data.

Right to withdraw consent – whenever the processing of your personal data is carried out on the basis of your consent, you have the right to ask Ágora to stop carrying out this treatment.

Right to portability – right to receive personal data concerning you, in a commonly used and machine-readable digital format, or to request the direct transmission of your data to another entity, but in this case only if technically possible.


Ágora retains personal data for the necessary and reasonable period and within the scope of the purpose(s) for which they are collected.

Conservation periods may change significantly when archival purposes of public interest or historical, scientific or statistical reasons justify it, and Ágora is committed to adopting appropriate conservation and security measures.

In order to determine the appropriate retention period, Ágora takes into account the various deliberations of the European data protection control authorities, namely the CNPD, and the Archival Regulation for Local Authorities (Portaria nº 412/2001, of 17 April and 1253/2009, of October 14).

5, 6, 7, 8  and  One 
© Josh Brandão

The dancer, as well as choreographer and backup dancer Marlyn Ortiz, born in 1976 - who danced in the New York clubs of the 90s, in Broadway musicals and in tours and music videos of Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, The Black Eyes Peas, Taylor Swift and Usher - is now the starting point for Martim Pedroso's next performance. The idea came to light in 2017 and not even a worldwide pandemic stopped this project from materialising. With closed borders, between meetings via zoom, Whatsapp messages and video calls, the script was being written, and each day that goes by, an ocean away, was another day of epic doubts, hesitations, risky projections and some certainties, always towards the future and a show in the future. 

5, 6, 7, 8 and One is a hybrid between docfilm and docudrama. It is known to orbit around the biography of a Puerto Rican dancer and choreographer who started dancing in a backyard in the Bronx, who has been on the biggest stages and arenas on planet Earth and who, at a certain point, crossed paths with a Portuguese stage director and actor on a certain terrace in downtown Lisbon. They like to look at this project as a dedication to all the artists who empower other artists.   

"I didn't conquer this place alone. Getting here and now, is the result of who I am and what I have achieved, as well as the result of all those who believed in me and protected me. It is also the result of all those who gave me nothing and rejected me. They have all empowered me. They made my internal strength, my confidence and my expression grow. My power is the result of my unconditional love for dance, my technique, discipline, perseverance, strength, my struggles, my sexuality, my anger, my fears and weaknesses. My movement, itself, is the result of my internal voice that has been built up by all these atoms."
