Visões Úteis (which in Portuguese stands for “Useful Visions”) is an artistic project, with a theatrical inspiration, based in Porto since 1994. A very personal artistic project, producing itself, a multidisciplinary project, using collaborative processes which invite all artists involved to take part in a very special commitment.
In Visões Úteis, the aesthetical project has been growing along with a very strong ethical— we can even say political— commitment, in a constant reflexion about the contemporary sense of making art— and especially performing arts— which is decisive to the daily working options and gives us an accurate sense of our political and social responsibility towards the community we live in.
Visões Úteis is a member of PLATEIA (Associação de Profissionais das ArtesCénicas), of IETM (International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts) and of the Anna Lindh Foundation.
VU has created more than 40 theatre productions, 8 works in the area of Landscape Performance and 3 Community Performances, and produced 11 films and 5 festivals, in Portugal and abroad. They also publish original drama and develop an Education Service.
