Teatro das Figuras aims to be a space of national reference in terms of excellence in programming, regional leadership, affirmation of the capital and centrality of the city of Faro and consolidation of the cultural image of the tourist destination.
Teatro das Figuras presents itself as a space for the dissemination of contemporary performing arts, committed to building a continuous and creative relationship with the community in which it operates, helping to form, look, think and share new artistic experiences, contributing to the cultural development of the city, the region and the country.
The activity of Teatro das Figuras is governed by programmatic principles that aim to position it as a multidisciplinary equipment where its own productions and co-productions must intertwine with receptions, where the commitment to contemporary times does not exclude historical retreats, where national, international and regional productions coexist and locations.
In terms of areas, its activity aims to give significant expression to all current programmatic axes: music and opera, dance, theater, new circus and cinema. And, in connection with all of them, increased attention to pedagogical and training perspectives, with strong and structured action in the Educational Service.

Duration: 75 minutes Age rating: >16 Pata de Ganso is the third solo by comedian Pedro Teixeira da Mota. After “Impasse”, and the doubts about the stage of life he was in, and Caramel Macchiato, where he thought he already knew where he was, Pedro believes that, only now, he really begins to understand who he is becoming. Using the ability to observe himself, “seeing himself from the outside”, Pedro points out his own limitations and weaknesses and reflects on the person he is becoming – which may not be the person he always idealized.
