Ana Borralho (Lagos, 1972) & João Galante  (Luanda, 1968) met as visual arts students at AR.CO (Lisbon). As actors/co-creators they worked regularly with theatre company OLHO and director João Garcia Miguel between 1992 and 2002. Since 2002, they have worked together in the fields of performance art, dance, installation, photography, sound, and video. Recurring themes in their work are: body|mind, inside|outside, emotion|feeling, me|others, private|public, social|political. Their recent piece Atlas takes these ideas a step further by bringing 100 people of different professions on stage.

Co-creation highlights include: Mistermissmissmister (2002), I love you (2003), No Body Never Mind 001, 002 and 003 (2004-06), sexyMF (2006), I put a spell on you (2007), Meatphysics (2008), Untitled, Still Life (2009), World of Interiors (2010), Atlas (2011), Linha do Horizonte (2012), Purgatório (2013), Aqui estamos nós (2014), Só há uma vida, nela quero ter tempo para construir-me e destruir-me (2015), Vão Morrer Longe (2016), and Gatilho da Felicidade (2017). With Mónica Samões, they developed No Jogo do Desejo ou o Choque Frontal (workshops for young people – 2008), the video documentary Eu Não Tu (2009), and a performance for young audiences A Linha ou O Deserto já não é uma casa vazia (2009).

In 2010, Teatro Municipal Maria Matos presented a small anthology of their performances with the title “The Wonderful World of Ana Borralho & João Galante.”
