Companies such as Teatro de Almada and Braga, Companhia Olga Roriz and the Orquestra Sinfonietta de Braga will pass through the century-old Viana do Castelo concert hall.

Teatro do Noroeste, a resident company in Sá de Miranda, has scheduled the premiere of four of its own creations and nine co-productions.

The artistic director of Teatro do Noroeste, Ricardo Simões, told Lusa that this will be the first time that the company supports co-productions, "in a bet of consolidation as a hub for creation, programming and support for artistic creation".

“It is a leap in the history of the Teatro do Noroeste, because the co-productions open here and then run throughout the country, always carrying our name”, he said.

The first premiere of that structure is scheduled for February 27, with the childhood play “Palhaço Verde”, by Matilde Rosa Araújo, staged by Graeme Pulleyn.
