Teatro Municipal do Porto

Teatro Municipal do Porto, through its two hubs - Rivoli and Campo Alegre - presents a multidisciplinary programme open to a wide range of latitudes and different kinds of audiences, carrying out the strategy laid by the Culture Department since its reopening in September 2014.
The balance between what is done in this city, what is presented around the country and the international programme that we present in Porto, makes this Theatre a venue for discovery and artistic confirmations. It’s a place where we programme different approaches and present them on different scales, from a small dressing room to the under stage, the lobby or different auditoriums.
 
Teatro Rivoli

Teatro Rivoli

It was inaugurated in 1913 as a National Theatre. In the following years, changes in the urban centre forced a reconsideration and update of the building and thus Teatro Rivoli came to be, in 1923 - refurbished, adapted as a movie theatre, with a programme of opera, dance, theatre and concerts. Architect and engineer Júlio Brito signed the project. In 1994 it was closed for a complete refurbishment, with a project by architect Pedro Ramalho. In October 1997, Rivoli reopened its doors.
Presently, Rivoli hosts the national and international programme of Teatro Municipal do Porto with a particular focus on dance, theatre, music, puppetry, contemporary circus and film, along with some of the city’s main events.
Teatro Campo Alegre

Teatro Campo Alegre

Architect Rogério Cavaca designed Teatro Campo Alegre. After it was built in 2000, it was managed by the now extinct Fundação Ciência e Desenvolvimento (FCD). The building has four venues (Auditorium, Café-Teatro, Cine-Studio and Rehearsal Room) and three apartments equipped for artistic residencies - two with 2 bedrooms and one with 3 bedrooms.
Currently, Campo Alegre is the experimental hub of Teatro Municipal do Porto, a creative lab within the programme "Campo Aberto", housing artists from different latitudes and nine local companies on short and long term residency, which will later on present the result of their work.

The reinstatement of Teatro Municipal do Porto was presented during the election campaign as a strategic priority of Rui Moreira for the four-year period of 2013-2017. With that purpose, the Culture Cabinet of the City Council of Porto conceived a project for Teatro Municipal, which was consolidated throughout the first semester of 2014 and officially inaugurated on September 12, 2014 with the reopening of one of its hubs - a symbol of the performing arts in the city and the country - Rivoli. 
Teatro Municipal do Porto carries out the mission we’ve defined for it: to present in both hubs - Campo Alegre and Rivoli - a programme oriented for dance, yet interdisciplinary, particularly focused on artists and cultural agents from Porto, as partner of the main theatres in the country and consistently related with contemporary international creation.
With a new director in charge of the programme, Teatro Municipal do Porto was reconstructed in the image of its city and is today a participated, critical and entrenched project in local culture, while remaining open to the world.

The programme developed for Teatro Municipal do Porto is based on the project defined by the City Council of Porto for both hubs of Teatro Municipal: Rivoli and Campo Alegre.
Anchored in three main axis - Programme, Paralelo and Campo Aberto - Teatro Municipal do Porto presents an artistically demanding programme, working closely with local, national and international context.
The Programme is strongly focused on Dance, while other artistic areas are significantly represented. Therefore, Theatre, Music, Film and Literature are systematic territories of our programme.
The international Dance, Theatre and Music programme reinforces the city’s offer regarding international circulation of today’s most outstanding contemporary artists.
Our work with national companies and artists is based on the co-production of new work and the promotion of repertoire. Regarding co-productions, Teatro Municipal do Porto dedicates special attention to local companies, nurturing a deeper and more substantial development of their work. With an average of 30 annual co-productions, Teatro Municipal do Porto assumes its role as one of the main national promoters of performing arts.
Bearing in mind these companies, projects and local artists, we’ve created Campo Aberto - Artistic Residencies Programme, to support the development of their work. This programme is developed on both hubs of Teatro Municipal do Porto (Rivoli and Campo Alegre), where we host long-term and short-term residencies, which will produce public presentations.
All this work comes to life with the presence and participation of our audiences. Through Paralelo - Approach Programme to Performing Arts, we develop a series of activities connected to our programme, focused on audience mediation and consolidation.
This balance between what happens in the city, what is shown around the country and the international performances that are presented in Porto, makes this theatre a true place for artistic discovery and confirmation, where risk and notability are in constant dialogue.

PROGRAMMING NETWORKS

At the initiative of Maison de la danse and Lyon’s Dance Biennale, several European institutions decided to join efforts: Théâtre de Liège, Teatro Municipal do Porto, Barcelona’s Grec Festival, Maison de la danse and Lyon’s Dance Biennale. These are first-class choreographic institutions, each organising a festival.
The 5 Sentidos [5 Senses] network
The 5 Sentidos [5 Senses] network was established in 2009, in the scope of QREN 2007-2013, in order to promote networked cultural programming and artistic production. It currently comprises eleven cultural facilities around the country, and seeks to support and stimulate the development of performing arts in Portugal by organising performance tours and backing up the production of new creations through co-financing, co-productions and residencies. The 5 Sentidos network’s strategy is based on the exchange of knowledge and work processes and experiences, and it aims at strengthening the performance of its partners, expediting artistic creation and broadening audiences.
Amarelo
AMARELO is a network born out of the desire and interest of seven national partners (Centro de Artes de Ovar, Dançando com a Diferença, São Luiz Teatro Municipal, Teatro Municipal de Bragança, Teatro Municipal do Porto, Teatro Viriato, Walk&Talk) to team up. Its mission is to support the creation and circulation of artistic projects aiming at children and youths, and to value national and international partnership work, as well as the debate and reflexion on artistic and mediation practices.
