Teatro do Bairro Alto is a new municipal theater in Lisbon. He is dedicated to the creation and presentation of experimental artistic projects, as well as the discursive practices that surround and cross them. At TBA, new and established artists, both Portuguese and foreign, meet from the various performing arts disciplines (theatre, dance, music and sound arts, performance), with an audience that is offered tools to be adventurous and want to come back.
Focusing on experimentation means being open to a constellation of artistic approaches;
Emergent is who is starting, what is not yet named or who is underrepresented;
Being an inclusive, green and accessible theater is a daily and transversal objective;
Being in the center implies paying attention to the margins;
A theater can slow down and speed up, have two or more speeds;
Programming is experimenting.
