Vitor Pordeus, 39 years old, is an actor since 9 and a physician since 24. He is a transcultural community psychiatrist working in Rio de Janeiro, his homeland. He founded the Center for Culture, Science and Health at the Public Health Office, the DyoNises Theater, the Madness Hotel and Spa and the People's University for Art and Science inside the Engenho de Dentro Asylum, where the famous psychiatrist Nise da Silveira has worked. He is also a Guest Professor at McGill University Division of Transcultural Psychiatry, where he wrote the thesis "Restoring the Art of Healing in a Scientific Age", currently edited as a book being sold worldwide.

Vitor's experience as an actor and physician in the last ten years starts in the Museum of Images of the Unconscious founded by the psychiatrist Nise da Silveira in 1946, guided by the scientific principles developed by Carl Jung, with whom she worked personally. After understanding the scientific basis of Da Silveira's work, Vitor founded the DyoNises Theater in the same asylum where she worked reproducing the clinical results in severe mental illness, chronic psychotic and schizophrenic patients. This developed into the "Madness Hotel and Spa", an artistic occupation of four old and abandoned wards of the Engenho de Dentro asylum, and later into a community Theater Clinic, all this in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
