A Tarumba - Teatro de Marionetas is a Portuguese professional theatre company, created in 1993, with artistic direction of Luís Vieira. Its particular purpose is to spread and promote puppet and visual theatre. In accordance with its name, Tarumba, it pursues multiple artistic projects...

Tarumba means to be confused or perplexed, astounded, fascinated, stunned, astonished… and expresses how the company generally envisions puppetry art. The artistic project comprises: creation and artistic experimentation; the International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms - FIMFA Lx organization; training and research with the creation of a Puppetry Arts Centre, Centro de Artes da Marioneta - CAMa.

The company has been performing all over Portugal and abroad, in many international festivals. Since 2001 organizes annually the International Festival of Puppetry and Animated Forms - Festival Internacional de Marionetas e Formas Animadas - FIMFA Lx, that has been known by the quality of its programme and multiplicity of proposals, where the puppets have a special role (shows, workshops, conferences, artistic residences, exhibitions).

During these 17 years of activity, beyond all the acquired experience, Tarumba created an important artistic collection, consisting of puppets made by the company, for each play, old and ‘historical’ puppets, Toy theatres (originals from 19th century and beginnings of 20th century), theatre books, especially about puppet theatre, photographs, programs and posters, that are present in the Puppetry Arts Centre, Centro de Artes da Marioneta - CAMa.
