Já is an artistic association founded in Lisbon in July 2017, by Dan Cotterall, Tania Kumeda, Margarida Rocha and Suresh Nampuri, to perform innovative English language theatre.
We aim to tell stories for the here and now – in English – in Lisbon, in the cultural cradle of Europe.
Apart from our mainstage productions, staged readings and workshops, we are involved in experiments with other dedicated professionals from around the globe who enjoy pushing the boundaries of the theatrical medium. This is our Já Universe. Hopefully, these creative explorations will plant the seed for ground-breaking new productions in the future.
WHAT WE DO
Our aim is to bring to Lisbon plays, poems and texts that inspire, provoke, bewitch and stay with us.
Theatre is a collaborative process whose impact and power stem from an act that is fundamentally human – the act of sharing – body, speech and mind. We are delighted to offer workshops through which knowledge, knowhow and technique can be shared.
Apart from the organisations which are already part of our ‘helping hand network’ we are always open to meet you, hear your challenges and help out in any way we can!

THE FUTURE BECKONS
Contact us if you need private acting coaching. We can help you get the best out of the script and your role.
We see creative spaces as living creatures constantly exchanging energies, inspiration and character with the minds and bodies that inhabit and move through them…
Our dream is to create the Já International Art Space. As well as being a performance space, this venue will include audio & visual exhibits by up-and-coming as well as established artists, with the atmosphere generated by each activity feeding and elevating the experience of the others.
A place that invites readings, discussions, and provokes curiosity – a little oasis of continuous creativity on the gentle shores of Lusitania.
