COME AS YOU ARE – this is what we believe in. Since 2016, we’re the pioneer agency transforming the fashion and advertising industries in Brazil by street casting and bringing together a roast of independent spirits that challenge the status-quo. Our network of creative, non-conformist, beautiful people have shaken and destabilised the industry, and together we are constantly evolving. Casting, production, creative direction, project management and consultancy is what we’re known for, and we like a (global) challenge.

Back in february 2019, we had invited Demétrio and a few other incredible performers to tell us about their relationship with dancing. The idea was to make mini-films that would eventually become part of a docu-series called “Squad Snapshots.” The series ended up never being finished, for a number of irrelevant reasons, but we were lucky to have saved and rescued all the recorded material, as we now have a glimpse of his thoughts and talent. In this now sad short film, Demétrio shows us his skills and his candid relationship with the art of dancing, and how it saved him countless times. We hope we did him justice.
