Matheus Moura. I’m 22 years old. I’ve lived in Curitiba for 12 year, and 2 years ago I had the first contact with art in the series “Nóis por Nóis”, where I played the main character in the short film “Horizonte”. After that, I started to live with art every day, improving at beatbox, doing theater and producing audiovisual content for Youtube channel “CTALIGADO”, producing content to Curitiba’s International Festival as a Youtuber. Recently I’ve been acting in the movie “Alice Júnior” as one of the main characters.
I’m a future paramedic, writer, filmmaker, translator, veterinarian… or wherever fate takes me.
