Teatro Aveirense Today


Since 2016, Teatro Aveirense has been managed directly by the City Council of Aveiro. This transfer initiated another phase in terms of cultural policy in the city, taking on new dimensions of programming, including festivals outside its space, such as the Festival dos Canais (Festival of the Canals), Prisma / Art Light Tech and Criatech - Digital Creativity and Technology.
Therefore, Teatro Aveirense now incorporates its adjacent area as a natural stage, the Sala Aberta (Open Hall) surrounded by Praça da República, and provides a programme designed specifically for this space. This new stage builds a bridge between the festivals organised by Teatro Aveirense, distinguishing itself by a more assiduous presence and concentration in terms of space.
Multimedia arts have also become an integral part of Teatro Aveirense in this new phase, an option demonstrated in its programming and on the current website, where there is an area with specific content. Without detracting from its basic mission, based on the performing arts, Teatro Aveirense expands its activity to include other forms of artistic expression, incorporating video, digital arts, sound installations and other similar possibilities. This strategy has been designed for the long term, with a physical and online dimension, bringing together reference creators, emerging artists and work with the community. 

Teatro Aveirense is a municipal structure with regular programming in various artistic areas, standing out as a presentation and production structure par excellence and as a space for knowledge, thought and current creation.

Its operating philosophy centres on the provision of a public service, privileging local audiences and their sociocultural diversity, developing its activity of awareness, training and creation of new audiences. 

It is a space for aesthetic enjoyment, training, education, dissemination and promotion of identity and culture, a place where an open cultural and social dialogue occurs, in which different perspectives on art and society are presented, seeking to provide visions of a better future, increasingly open to Europe and the world.
