Biography[edit]

Child Star[edit]

His mother was a music-hall performer.[5] He made his stage debut at Coliseu do Porto at the age of three and began a successful career as a child singer in Portugal. Throughout his early years, Roque won several singing competitions and released his first album Brincar a Brincar in 1995. His main collaborator was producer Tony Lemos, founding member of Eurodance Portuguese band Santamaria. Roque's repertoire was known for employing a variety of musical styles, most notably Pop.[6]

Theatre & Opera[edit]

In his teens, he suspended his musical career to study theatre and film in Portugal (graduated from Academia Contêmporanea do Espectaculo - Escola de Artes), Brazil (where he was a student of Fábio Barreto and Augusto Boal in Rio de Janeiro) and France,[7] where he graduated from the famous École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, studying physical theatre and other major dramatic territories, such as Melodrama, Mime, Tragedy, Commedia dell'arte, Clowning and Buffoon.[8]

Roque's theatre credits include amongst others the first Portuguese production of The Laramie Project directed by Diogo Infante in 2005 playing Matthew Shepard's killer Aaron McKinney, and C'était Marie-Antoinette in 2009, in which he appeared with actress Natacha Régnier. Also in 2009, he appeared in Theatre du Chatelet's opera production of The Magic Flute and in Opéra National de Montpellier's production of Dido and Aeneas, playing The Sorceress.

In 2011, his performance in Irina Brook's Peter Pan at Théâtre de Paris was praised by Le Figaro, France Inter and Financial Times.[9][10][11][12][13] In France, he has also worked as a mime in stage productions at Musée National d'Art Moderne, Le Corum, Opéra National de Montpellier and Opéra de Marseille.

Contemporary Art[edit]

On March 18, 2015, his work My Cake, was unveiled simultaneously in six European museums as part of Mons 2015 European Capital of Culture.[14] The art film was nominated for various art and music awards.[15] In January 2016, Nuno Roque appeared on the cover of Mexican magazine Ulisex! Mgzn, and was named one of the Top 15 people of the year, alongside President Barack Obama, Caitlyn Jenner and Pope Francis.[16]
