- Projects in many structures in different forms
2. Creative spaces where the public can meet around performances:
- Through the creation, production, and dissemination of professional shows
- Through the production of annual events: Winter Fest, P.A.S Festival - an opportunity for artistic exchange, open to professionals and non-professionals
- At Theatre 21 - monthly performance program
3. Research spaces to constantly improve the quality of the pedagogical and the aesthetic skills:

Founded on a humanistic vision of art and learning, ATH creates an environment where pleasure and tolerance are essential while cultivating the rigor necessary for the act of creation.
"That is art: to give all you have. And what have you?
Your life - nothing more. And to give life means to feel life throughout your whole being."
