Abstract

The actual work proposes a theoretical study on traditional knowledge of Mapiko's masks, a cultural manifestation of Moçambique. It intends to explore issues related to the appropriation process of technic, symbology and creativity of the performer that uses such masks. Thereby the study proposes a description and analysis of Makipo's masks, based on the examination of the bibliography material and field research, wich will make possible the prodution of primary sources like videographic , photografic, written records and interviews. As references to realize comparatively the specificities of Makipo two other forms of technical, symbolical and creative appropriation will be used: the work proposed to actors by Jacques Lecoc, and the work to actors with balinese masks developed by the Amok Teatro e Cia Teatrl dos Bondrés do Rio de Janeiro.
