Angelo Custodio

Angelo Custodio (1983 Portugal) Lives and works in Amsterdam, NL.

Angelo is a research based artist and performer experimenting with voice, writing and sound. He creates sonic based experiences from a crip~queer perspective, informed by critical theory and embodied knowledge. Trained as a classical singer, Angelo explores the relations between poetics and techno-somatic ways of voicing. Through listening, he develops sonic encounters with the vulnerable, opening ’cracks’ to wild(er) spaces that utterly invite freer ecologies of living. 

Angelo is currently a tutor at Sandberg Instituut and facilitates processes that hold space for regenerative movement and nourish relational understandings of the bodymindvoice, with a focus on the systemic failures towards alternative corporealities.

Angelo holds a MFA from Master of Voice (MoV), Sandberg Instituut and is currently under the development budget of Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst.

He has presented work in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, China, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Greece and Portugal, in institutions such as Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW), Van Abbemuseum Oude Kerk and Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S.M.A.K.).
