Accessibility

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

Nowadays  TBA is an accessible building for audience members with reduced mobility. Access to the building is done via a lowered street sidewalk.  Wheelchair users are then able to access TBA’s main auditorium on the basement level (level -1) using the lift located on the left of the main door. In the main auditorium, there is 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. But there is an accessible green room on level -1. To access our working areas through the public accesses, please coordinate your needs with our Production team.

 

Nearby Metro station

The closest step-free Metro station is Rato (Yellow line).

Inclusion Policy

Inclusive language

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.

 

Gender-neutral WC

All toilets at TBA are gender-neutral.

 

Family-oriented policies

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.
