João Fiadeiro belongs to the generation of choreographers that emerged at the end of the 1980s and that, following the American "post-modern" movement and the French and Belgian Nouvelle Danse movements, gave rise to Nova Dança Portuguesa. Much of his training was done between Lisbon, New York and Berlin, after which he danced with Companhia de Dança de Lisboa (86-88) and Ballet Gulbenkian (89-90). In 1990 he founded Companhia RE.AL, which, in addition to creating and performing his shows, regularly staged across Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia and South America, mentored and represented emerging artists. At the same time, in the context of the programming of Atelier Real, it welcomed artists in residence and presented transdisciplinary artists and events. João Fiadeiro has regularly led workshops at various schools and universities, in Portugal and overseas. He is currently studying for a doctorate in contemporary art at Colégio das Artes da Universidade de Coimbra (the Coimbra University College of Arts).
