Accessibility is at the core of the work developed by TBA. Our policies cover matters of physical and social accessibility for both artistic teams and audience members.
Physical accessibility of audience members
In 2019, TBA is not yet an accessible building for audience members with reduced mobility. From 2020 onwards, wheelchair users will be able to access TBA’s main auditorium on the basement level (level -1) using the lift by the main door. In the main auditorium, there will be from October 2019 onwards a lift platform that provides access to wheelchair users to the stage. Our box office is on the ground floor (level 0) and has a lowered counter. You can find one accessible restroom on the basement level (level -1).
Physical accessibility for artistic teams
TBA’s Artists Entrance is not yet accessible for wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility. The dressing room’s only access is through a flight of stairs. For using the public accesses (lift and lift platform), please contact our production team.
Nearby Metro station
The closest step-free Metro station is Rato (Yellow line).
TBA will present performances with Portuguese sign language interpretation for people with hearing loss and deaf audiences, audio description for visually impaired audiences and relaxed sessions for anyone who benefits from a more relaxed environment (people with autism spectrum disorders, etc.).
Subtitles and simultaneous interpretation
TBA’s public communication is bilingual (Portuguese and English) and, whenever possible, we provide Portuguese subtitles or interpretation in our events.
TBA’s future website will be fully accessible according to the W3C Accessibility Guidelines.
TBA follows an inclusive language editorial code. We prefer genderless words, and, when that is not possible in Portuguese, we alternate between using the feminine and masculine neutral plural.
All restrooms at TBA are gender-neutral.
TBA provides a multipurpose chair for the children of both internal and external teams. If you need specific conditions to bring your children, please contact us.
