Battlefield


2018

“Campo de Batalha” (Battlefield) is a programme by the Porto Municipal Theatre (TMP) aimed at presenting new creative work in which risk, indiscipline and error can and must be evident. The programme is intended for creators aged 30 and under, who have premiered fewer than two pieces of work.
“Battlefield” is designed as a space for experimentation, discovery, development and the presentation of work which is being premiered or is yet to be presented in Porto, enabling access to the conditions and facilities essential for the production of new work.
The work selected will be developed and presented on the stages or unconventional spaces at the two venues – Rivoli and Campo Alegre – belonging to the TMP.

2. use of a stage or unconventional space at the two venues – Rivoli and Campo Alegre – of the TMP according to availa- bility and analysis of the working plan;
