Founded in the 1990s, the Teatro Nacional São João (TNSJ) has sought, under the direction of Ricardo Pais, to pursue an organic approach to its mission, focused on developing a unique artistic project, assembling optimal conditions for theatrical creation, an engaged partnership with the Portuguese and European theatrical universes and a particular emphasis on the communicability of its shows. A member of the Union des Théâtres de l’Europe since 2003, the TNSJ also comprises Teatro Carlos Alberto, an important platform for collaborations with Porto theatrical companies and for many Portuguese contemporary stage creations, and the São Bento da Vitória Monastery, a 17th-century monument that hosts theatrical performances and other events in the TNSJ’s programming.
