Created in 2000, the  Laje Theater attracts the youth from many neighborhoods for its formation and residence programs. The artistic residences take place at Arena Dicró, also in Penha.

The actor, producer and teacher Veríssimo Júnior, a founder of the group, says the company has been welcomed by the locals: "we have a faithful audience, always present, who has embraced our group in a very organic connection".
