TUP

University Theatre of Porto


TUP was born on December 13th of 1948: it is Porto’s oldest theatre company. It was founded by Professor Hernâni Monteiro along with medicine students.

It is a non-profit youth association which focuses on experimentation, the power of personal identity, collective strength and informal training. Anybody can become a TUP member, no matter the age or background. Many have had similar experiences: various members who wanted to discover more of the world, many professionals whose honest desire to experiment and go further makes TUP feel like a privilege to work with. It is an essential freedom. It is an essential freedom, every day. And that is why TUP is here. Here and now, for 72 years.
