In the year in which the country celebrates 50 years of freedom and democracy, FATAL takes to the stage for the 23rd time. It's been 23 years of restless resistance, boundless creativity and, above all, freedom.

The new edition of the Festival pays tribute to the Teatro Universitário do Porto - TUP group, for its 75 years of uninterrupted activity. An existence that has embraced modernity through initiatives that go far beyond the annual theater initiation course, being an example of resistance, constant reinvention and connection to the present.

FATAL is once again taking place at the University and in the city, in various auditoriums and venues in Lisbon. Come and celebrate with us!
