Marcus „Detetive“ is a dancer and teacher from Berne. He came into contact with Forró and Brazilian culture in general in the early 2000s through Capoeira, where he also got his nickname for his curiosity and sense of observation.
Marcus has been a passionate dancer since his teenage years, influenced by various Brazilian, Latin and African dance styles. Since 2012 he has been increasingly active in Forró, organizing events and teaching as a part of the Forró Vem Vem movement and most of all interacting, dancing and learning in the Swiss and European Forró scene.
Marcus dances a very playful style of Forró with a strong Roots influence. Rather than fancy techniques and movements, he likes to focus on musicality, body connection and expression in his dance, which is also evident in his teaching.
