About

Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Rogério M. Pinto uses art-based methods to conduct community-engaged research in the United States and Brazil. Funded by the National Institutes of Health and other sources, Pinto investigates strategies for improving delivery of services (HIV and drug-use prevention and care) and develop/test interventions to help racial/ethnic and sexual minoritized groups develop critical consciousness and health promotion behaviors. Pinto performed “Marília,” his one-person play, on New York City's Theatre Row in 2015 and at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, Vrystaat, South Africa in 2016. “Marília” won the United Solo Festival Best Documentary Script. In “Marília,” Pinto explores the tragic death of his three-year-old sister and how it haunts and inspires the family she left behind. He built the “Realm of the Dead,” an art installation to investigate his own marginalization as a gender non-confirming, mixed-race and Latinx immigrant. “Realm of the Dead '' was presented at the School of Social Work as part of its Centennial celebration (2021), and at the Annual Conference for Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (2022).
