Fabio Tavares

Fabio Tavares (he/him/his) is a queer Brazilian artist who’s been obsessed with the human body in action from a very young age. He started off as a competitive gymnast before running away at 15 to join the circus, where he got his first professional job as an acrobat. He hasn’t stopped working since. In 1999, Mr. Tavares moved to NYC—where he’s been dancing, flying, falling, crashing, studying, learning, creating, teaching and making noise ever since.

Mr. Tavares has collaborated and performed with Yvonne Meyer, chameckilerner, Miguel Gutierrez, Fischerspooner, Noemie Lafrance, Luis Lara Malvacías, Jeniffer Monson, Circus Amok, John Heginbotham, Laurie Anderson,The Dazzle Dancers, The Daisy Spurs, Stanley Love—and more recently, Anne Bogart and the acclaimed SITI Company. He has also danced with Elizabeth Streb and her extreme-action company for 14 years and was the company's associate artistic director for a decade. He has also taught at Pace University between 2014 and 2017 and is currently part of the Yale School of Drama faculty. Mr. Tavares’ one-man show, “The Ex-Body," is based on the text of “The Hamletmachine” by Henier Müller and, since 2010, has been performed in Brazil, Europe, and the U.S. in several different festivals.

Mr. Tavares is also an AmSAT-certified Alexander Technique teacher, a certified Klein Technique™ teacher, and a certified Zero Balancing practitioner. For more info, please go to Healthandpoise.com.
