Theatre & Appreciation Of A Community's Local Culture

Teatro da Pedra is a group based in São João del-Rei - MG that continues to delve into research, creation, and production of theatre shows, as well as developing an educational project that serves hundreds of children, young people, and adults in the region. In the educational sphere, the company offers theatre workshops in its city and the wider region, promoting access to art and strengthening the appreciation of cultural identity. As part of the workshops, educators try to get their students to research their own histories, as well as the histories of the places where they are.


With more than 20 years' experience in artistic and pedagogical activities aimed at communities, Teatro da Pedra will present its working methods for dialogue with local residents, reflections on the possibilities of connecting with the surroundings and the results we have experienced through years of work in this field. All of these factors demonstrate the power of encounters and exchanges between theatre and the community.
