THE COMPANY

PATHS / VECTORS / LINES / MATRIXES

Our artistic proposal does not obey
a specific canon, as can be seen by our production history, which mirrors the plurality of its members artistic origins. With a path related to the performing arts, we have the continuous ambition to research ways of doing things, investing in the search for new approaches to staging and creation. We often use classic texts because we recognize their intrinsic value as timeless artistic statements.

Revisiting this heritage does not, however,

prevents us from being attentive to contemporary dramas (assuming the ambiguity of the word here) and therefore our projects
future include many texts by authors of the XX and XXI centuries. At the same time, we develop continuity artistic work with communities in Marvila (Lisbon) and Odivelas, in addition to the production of shows and workshops for children and young people. We affectionately call
to this youth section “O Rebento” (literally translates to Sprout.
