Since 2004, he is director of the Atelier Real, a welcoming environment for events and artist residencies. Between 1995 and 2003, he collaborated with the theatre company United Artists as a coach for the "movement of the actors," in all of the company’s productions. He staged "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett; "4'48 '' Psychosis" by Sarah Kane; and "Night sings their songs" by Jan Fosse for this company. Between 2011 and 2014, Fiadeiro co-directed with anthropologist Fernanda Eugenio the AND_Lab research center in Lisbon, a training and research platform at the intersection of creativity, sustainability and everyday life.
The Composition in Real Time method, initially designed to support the choreographic and dramaturgical writing of his work, evolved increasingly into a tool and theoretical and practical platform to think about decision-making, representation and collaboration. This research takes place in the context of art, as well as in collaboration with various disciplines, and has led him to teach workshops in masters and doctoral programs in Portuguese and foreign schools and universities on a regular basis. Currently, João Fiadeiro is doing a PhD in the College of Arts of the University of Coimbra.
