MARTE is a collective of artistic research, education, management and creation of performing arts, composed by an open team of twenty artists, directors, playwrights, actors, producers, arts researchers and curators. MARTE centers its work in building a collaborative network and finding in culture a place of belonging, for instance, by being an active part of the association ESCENA It counts with a theater room. It's mission unfolds into three main activities: the first one is to programme performing arts spectacles in its theater building, including theater, dance, performances, among others. The second activity is to create, design and produce seasons and festivals. The third activity has to do with the creation of its own performing arts pieces, which involve all the collective, and to help to develop the individual projects of its members.
