TEATRO VIRIATO – CAEV
Teatro Viriato is a cultural structure for the programming and production of performing arts, run by Centro de Artes do Espetáculo de Viseu, Associação Cultural e Pedagógica and directed by Paula Garcia. Since 1999, it also hosts Companhia Paulo Ribeiro. An object lesson in cultural decentralisation, its programming features many Portuguese and foreign shows of music, theatre, dance and new circus, as well as various educational activities, operating within various local, national and international networks. Teatro Viriato supports Portuguese artists via co-productions and residency support, while also helping professional artists who wish to reside in Viseu. Since 1998, it enjoys the financial support of the Viseu Municipality and the Portuguese Government.
