A Cidade e os Sonhos
[The City and the Dreams]
Eça de Queiroz's last novel is an apologetic piece of writing about some kind of undefined quality of life that appears diffusely indicated. It is therefore about time travel that we are interested in approaching this work.

About us

We believe that art transforms life. The transformative effect that art can have on people and on society creates the hope that each one of us has the individual power to effect change. We strive to nurture this hope. In 2006, we formed a cultural association that is guided by artistic creation, cultural programming, training, and collaboration with local organisations in the form of community projects.

Where we are

We are located in the Alentejo town of Montemor-o-Novo, in Portugal. We endeavour to intervene in outlying areas of major programming routes, promoting access to culture and the arts, thus increasing social accessibility..

What we do

We help promote the performing arts focusing on theatre, more specifically puppet theatre. Since 2008, we have hosted and produced the International Puppet Festival. In parallel, and every year, we début one or two of our own productions. The cultural projects, primarily by engaging with the school and senior’s community, are the ultimate pillar of our public intervention.

Our goal

To enhance the heritage of the traditional and modern puppet and promote a culture with a shared language that ties tradition and modernity together. And to help empower people and the society they are a part of, fostering values of equality, justice, freedom, full citizenship, humanism and peace.
