“Is there no end to Nuno Silva's talents? We saw him as an eloquent dancer with Henri Oguike Dance Company, and as the strutting gym Nazi in Protein Dance's Dear Body he delivered the funniest movement-theatre performance of 2009. In Arthur Pita's full-length work God's Garden, Silva reveals himself as a fine singer of fado, the melancholy song-poetry of Portugal.”  Luke Jennings, Guardian

An artist with a career spanning contemporary dance (Henri Oguike, Luca Silvestrini, Javier de Frutos and Arthur Pita), classical opera (Mahogany Opera, Cork Opera) and West End musicals (Cabaret, The Light Princess), Nuno Silva draws on the traditions of his Portuguese roots to evoke the excitement and unpretentiousness of Lisbon old quarter in dramatic new fashion.  

With a tradition and fan-base to rival flamenco, Fado is the blues of Portugal, holding audiences in thrall with haunting melodies and passionate expression.  Nuno Silva has brought together an international team of dancers and musicians for A Darker Shade of Fado where sensual dance and soul-bearing fado meet.
