Serafín Ziquer Xavier


(Former known as Glenn)
I am a professional mixed media artist, with a Swedish/Brazilian background, who works with acting, performance, movement art, sound, video and animation. My great interest is to
combine different art forms together so that it becomes a complete work, where I can express myself with all these different media. I am very inspired by the "imperfect" human being, our ugly sides and humanfragility and I like to work with figurative realism. I have worked as a freelancer national and
international since 1995. Where I have participated in theater peroduction, Swedish Television, Danish Televion, MTV, Netflix, short films and commercials. Up to now I am still working with the Reumert nominated web series room4.one and Room4.1- LIVE by Kristjan Ingimarsson.

Sceneblog- ROOM4.1- LIVE DK. “Og kun fordi det er fremragende performere – som Glenn Ziquer Xavier og Noora Hannula –fungerer det efter hensigten.”

EN. “And only because excellent performers -as Glenn Ziquer Xavier and Noora Hannula - it works out as intended.”

Henrik Lyding - Middleton
DK. “Glenn Ziqver Xavier-er nemlig et under af komisk bevægelseskunst.”

EN.“Glenn Ziqver Xavier-is a wonder of comic movement art.“

Michael Søby CPH CULTURE- FOREVER YOUNG.
DK. “Alligevel kan det ikke skjules, at den svenske skuespiller
Glenn Ziquer Xavier er og bliver aftenens stjerne, og formår både at få børn og bedstemødre til at le, hvad enten han agerer varulv eller superhelt.”

EN. “Still, it can't be hidden, that the Swedish actor Glenn Ziquer Xavieris becomes the star of the evening, and manages to both make children and grandmothers laugh, whether he is a werewolf or a superhero.”

CPHCULTURE- MIDDLETON DK.
“Men stjernen er i år svenskeren Glenn Ziqver Xavier, der virker næsten uhyggelige overbevisende som menneskelig robot. Hans bevidst mekaniske kropssprog er krydret med humoristiske overraskelser, og så laver han samtidig en eminent lydkulisse, der låner en forbløffende
autenticitet til bevægelserne...”

EN. “But this year the star is Glenn Ziqver Xavier, who seems almost creepy convincing as a human robot. His deliberately mechanical body language is spiced with humorous surprises, and at the same time as he makes an eminent soundscape that creates an astonishing authenticity to the movements...”

Morten Hede- SULT/ HUNGER DK.
“Glenn Ziqver Xavier, han leverer mimisk en præstation langt ud over det sædvanlige. Hans ansigt kan lægges i folder, som er en Thomas Mørk værdig. Han har en komisk sans, som får hans små lyde, der ikke engang er ord, til at virke som knivskarpe punchlines – udelukkende ved hjælp af timing og kropslig fornemmelse. Hans hovedrolle i “Sult” bliver vulgært overspillet, men samtidig med den dybeste
sikkerhed og troværdighed. Han kan spille en kærlighedsscene som en Romeo og en grådighedsscene som end Harpagon. Og sulten gør ham lige så omsorgsvækkende som den lille pige med svovlstikkerne.”

EN. “Glenn Ziqver Xavier delivers mimically a performance far out of the ordinary. His face, which is Thomas Mørk worthy. He has a comical sense that makes his little sounds that are not even words seem like razor-sharp punchlines - solely through timing and bodily sensation. His starring role in "Hunger" is vulgarly overplayed, but at the same time with the deepest seriousity and credibility. He can play a love scene like a Romeo and one greed scene as Harpagon. And the hunger makes him as caring as The Little Match Girl.”

Inge Rogat Møller- JV SULT/ HUNGER
DK “Glenn Ziqver Xavier er en stor oplevelse, der dominerer scenen med sin insisterende og dramatiske tilstedeværelse.”

EN. “Glenn Ziqver Xavier is a huge experience, who dominates the stage with his insistence and dramatic presence.”

BYENKALDER.DK- Sunshine
DK. “Glenn Ziqver Xavier smider sig selv rundt så hele båder ryster af grin.”

EN. “Glenn Ziqver Xavier throws himself around so the entire boat shakes with laughter.”

Monna Dithmer- Mysteriet om den gyldne skarabæ/ The mystery of the golden scarabée.
DK.“Når Knuds bedre jeg spilles af et fund af en spiller, den svenske danser Glenn Ziqver Xavier...”

EN. “When Knuds better half is played by such a catch of an an actor, the swedish danser Glenn Ziqver Xavier...”
