Theatre - be it under traditional formats or as a dimension of more experimental and multi-disciplinary performances - constitutes an important part of Ar.Co’s activity programs during the first decade of the school’s existence. The Companhia de Ópera Buffa (that in the meantime adopts the name Marionetas de S. Lourenço e o Diabo) holds the record of appearances. Many other groups and experimentations, however, deserve to be mentioned: the Oficina de Teatro Os Psiconautas, the Colectivos Faz Tudo, the Grupo O Novo Teatro, the Teatro da Cantina Velha, the experiments of  Miguel Yeco or of the Grupo de Teatro Alta Recriação. Performance reappears frequently over the years, in connection with training methodologies (in workshops or courses) and in specifoc works by students or invited artists.
