Ricardo Aleixo is a Brazilian poet and sound and visual artist who performs a sound experience of poetry with the body. Aleixo uses his voice, guitars, percussion instruments, laptops, bits of hardware, and his body in choreographed and improvised movement to take the audience on a journey through Afro-Brazilian culture and experimental sound. Referencing Brazil’s most iconic art, poetry, and music traditions, from Tropicália to concrete poetry, Aleixo brings Brazil’s avant-garde of today to Berkeley.
