Teatro O Bando
Founded in 1974, Teatro O Bando is one of Portugal’s oldest cultural cooperatives, a collective that has chosen aesthetic transfiguration as its means of operating on a civic and community level. Its roots can be found in street theatre and children’s entertainment. Teatro O Bando’s creations are largely defined by their visual impact, careful staging and a dramaturgical work that generally adapts texts by Portuguese-speaking authors that were not originally written for the stage. Teatro O Bando continues to strive for uniqueness in its productions, in order to create more powerful and unexpected works of art. The company’s latest home base is a farmhouse in Vale dos Barris, Palmela.
