Hugo Reis is an artist born in 1989 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
He grew up in a home where the television was constantly turned on, so when he started doing amateur theatre in 2003, he had the dream of becoming a telenovela star.
In 2012, he saw a picture of Philippe Gaulier in an old newspaper article from 1994 and fell in love with the man, so he went to study theatre at École Philippe Gaulier, in Paris. In 2014 he moved to Berlin, a city he had heard from someone he had met in a party to be cheaper yet more artistic than Paris.
In Berlin he started self-learning about video, working as a video artist creating stage videos for opera and theatre productions. Currently he finds pleasure alternating between doing both: standing in front of, as well as behind the camera.
