Dancer, singer and certified DanceAbility teacher (Montevideo, 2013), Marcelo is interested in exploring queer performativity, and the mixed abilities of (dis)abled bodies through the arts of the body. Recently, he created a concert called "Cancioneiro Queer" (Queer Songbook), which features LGBTQ/feminist songs from the repertoire of Weimar Republic Cabaret, Opera, Broadway, Off Broadway, and Brazilian Musical Theatre. Together with his solo "Transviado (Ich bin die fesche Lola!)", the concert was presented as a part of the November/2016 SESC Palladium's program comprised of LGBTQ artists' work, in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil. In 2016, he published a 'made for iBooks' ebook called I Am The Naughty Lola!, currently available for purchase on the Apple Store's iBooks app. A feminist art manifesto that focuses on a male body dancing with camp sensibility, the book travels through recent Dance history, and Queer Theory to investigate possibilities for a queer dance.
