Marcelo Kuna is the Dance Editor for Apricity Press. He graduated in December, 2015 with a B.A. in Dance from the Communication of the Body Arts course at PUC-SP. He currently lives in São Paulo, Brazil. 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 finished an undergraduate research internship at PUC-SP which studied the connections between East-West through mantra chanting and dance. This was done in collaboration with his academic advisor and professor Gaby Imparato, who has been researching for the past 25 years her specific take on Martha Graham's technique, which directs contraction and release to the creation of artistic processes.

Marcelo is currently learning a new method for voice: the Anthroposophical singing school of the Uncovering of the Voice, founded by renown Swedish opera singer Valborg Werbeck-Svärdström in collaboration with Rudolf Steiner. This new approach to voice, taught in São Paulo by Ana Taglianetti, has been blowing his mind to pieces!
