Vale dos Barris

// Headquarters

After having several homes at Lisbon since its foundation, in 2000 Teatro o Bando's Headquarters moved to a Valley called Vale dos Barris in Palmela. Placed right inside the Natural Reserve of the Arrábida in a farm that stretches from the road to the top of the a hill filling a banner of 80 hectares.

Teatro o Bando is now living between olive trees and herds of sheep occupying two twin pavilions (old pig styes) that were remodeled to have offices, workshops, warehouses, dressing rooms, interior and exterior stages and a path up the hill that's a reference to many local hikers.

This rural space has proven to be an ideal place for artistic residences and long or short workshops, allied with Teatro o Bando's training knowledge, actors, musicians and singers discover new approaches to the stage.
