Teatro Municipal do Porto

In 2023, under the artistic co-direction of Cristina Planas Leitão and Drew Klein, Teatro Municipal do Porto (TMP) strengthen its commitment to deepning artistic discourse and challenging the role of art in society, in a permanent dialogue with the city.

TMP, through its two hubs - Rivoli and Campo Alegre -, presents a multidisciplinary programme, open to a wide range of latitudes and audiences, implementing the strategy defined by the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Porto, since its reopening in September 2014, under the artistic direction of Tiago Guedes.

With a clear mission to co-produce, present and support the local, national and international artistic communities, TMP intends, above all, to consolidate itself as a platform for the development of effective relationships and sustained creative practices, in a constant triangulation between artists, audiences and the place of the institution.
Moved by the idea of how theatres can present realities, intends to affirm its hubs and spaces as places of possibility for dialogues that cross walls, bringing Porto and the world into animated exchange, with a sense of time and intersection.
Shaped by reality and the ways on how political, social and identity contexts motivate new narratives and offer different perspectives, its programme presents works with a varied amplitude in their scale and disciplines within the contemporary field, with a sense of courage in their content or form.
Using keywords rather than disciplines, in TMP, we believe in a fluid experience that moves through bodies in an individual and collective existence, in theatre as a tool for creating new languages for large, small and unconventional stages – it is poetic but challenging, it is hybrid but relatable.

Together with DDD - Festival Dias da Dança and the artistic residency center and workspace for the performing arts, CAMPUS Paulo Cunha e Silva, TMP is part of the Department of Performing Arts of Ágora — Cultura e Desporto E.M. / Câmara Municipal do Porto.

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 is one of the poles of TMP, hosting national and international programme of TMP, with a particular focus on dance, as well as important festivals of the city.

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. Presently, Rivoli is one of the poles of TMP, hosting national and international programme of TMP, with a particular focus on dance, as well as important festivals of the city.
