The purpose of these lectures is to show the artistic and creative paths of artists with credits already established in the national panorama, but also of new emerging artists.
Through this trip to their histories and routes in the arts, these lectures become a living class, certainly of great interest to the local, national artistic community and to the general public. This initiative allows continuity in time and the possibility for Teatro das Figuras to have access to some artists that otherwise, due to their agenda, would not be possible at all.
