Actors and dancers find in the body their main instrument of work, however, they use the body in a different way. According to this distincts uses of the body, would the aplication of the same exercises for body preparing makes the reception of them be different in each group of artists? What is the perception that actors and dancers have of their own body?For problematize this questions, this research envolves two artistic groups - IAdança-Núcleo ContemporanIA e Companhia da Dita - in which will be realized workshops based on Klauss Vianna's work.
