Pedro was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in 1985.


He started circus at the age of 14. A hobby at first, it quickly became a passion and later a profession. After a short period studying industrial design he moved to Belgium, where he graduated from the École Superieure des Arts du Cirque, ESAC, in 2011.

In the past years, Pedro has worked in different shows, companies and festivals around Europe and Brazil, including the company Feria Musica (Belgium), Coletivo Na Esquina (Brazil), Palazzo (Austria), Zanzibar (France) and many others.

Specialized in acrobatics and Chinese pole, he has always been fascinated by the art of “displacement”, constantly developing a research about body movement in different areas,

such as capoeira, gymnastics, tricks/kung fu and dance.

He's soon opening his own circus school, Brava Escola de Circo, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
