There are too many souls of wood not to love those wooden characters who do indeed have a soul.
-Jean Cocteau

The puppets in this exhibition reveal the characters created for texts by authors such as Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, Federico Garcia Lorca and Bertolt Brecht. 
A taste for the classics to discover them through miniature stages.
A Tarumba - Teatro de Marionetas celebrates 25 years in 2018!

Dr. Faustus, by Christopher Marlowe (1994) 

Tarumba means to be confused or perplexed, astounded, fascinated, stunned, astonished… words that express the company’s general feeling towards the puppetry arts.

A Tarumba - Teatro de Marionetas is a Portuguese professional theatre company, with artistic direction of Luís Vieira and Rute Ribeiro. It was founded by a group of people, from several different artistic backgrounds, Theatre, Cinema, Sculpture and History of Art. They all shared a common passion for puppetry and a profound awareness of the need of its revitalisation in Portugal.

The development of a work of great artistic and technical standard, as well as the constant innovation within the field of puppetry in Portugal, are the key aspects which have been characterizing the company’s activity.

Tarumba's artistic project covers the creation of shows, training, research and the annual organization of FIMFA Lx – International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms, since 2001. The 19th edition will be from 9 to 26 May 2019.

Twenty-five years are not only counted by strings, the main manipulation technique used by the company in its early years. To what the artistic creation and experiment are concerned, the shows produced reflect its intention of being addressed mostly to an adult audience, giving emphasis to contemporary forms and to the research within puppetry, with the use of toy theatres, shadows or objects. The artistic and technical qualities of the project, have been recognized not only in Portugal, but also in other countries such as France, Spain, United Kingdom, Denmark, Argentina, Brazil, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, India, Pakistan, Hungary, Turkey or Sweden.

On 21st March 2018 the company launched a bilingual book (Portuguese-English) on its activity and the puppetry arts, with articles wrote by programmers, critics, researchers and artists, such as Didier Plassard, João Carneiro, Gonçalo Frota, Renaud Herbin, Isabelle Bertola, Claire Dancoisne, among others.
