He has presented his work in many venues and festivals across Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and the United States and has closely collaborated with such artists as Maile Colbert, Manuela Barile, Iñaki Ríos, Paulo Raposo, Pablo Rega, André Gonçalves and Carlos Santos. In 2008 Rui has been exhibiting an intermedia performance/installation entitled ”La Scatola”, which he co-created with the Italian performer Manuela Barile. This project has received a major grant from the Portuguese Ministry of Culture and has been presented in several contemporary art museums (MUSAC and Centro Huarte in Spain), municipal theaters (Guarda and Barcelos, in Portugal) and sound art festivals (EME in Portugal and Hurta Cordel in Spain). As part of this project, Rui and Manuela have been giving a workshop entitled “The Amplified Expression of the Body”, in which they engage the participants in using sound as a means of characterizing and expanding the identity of a performer’s body and of the surrounding space.
