Teatro Vila Velha‘s mission is to promote artistic creation and innovation that is committed to collective reflection and respect for diversity. Born out of the counter-culture in Brazil in 1964, they hosted social movements such as the student struggles of the 1970s, and are now considered one of the most important theatres in Bahia. Their venue maintains an intense schedule with public technical and artistic workshops all year round.

PPP partnered with Teatro Vila Velha on Points of Contact 2010 and again for Forum Shakespeare 2013.
