Actors and dancers find in the body their main instrument of work, however, they use the body in a different way. According to these distinct uses of the body, would the application of the same exercises for body preparation makes the reception of them be different in each group of artists? What is the perception that actors and dancers have of their own bodies? To problematize these questions, this research involves two artistic groups - IAdança - Núcleo ContemporanIA e Companhia da Dita - in which will be realized workshops based on Klauss Vianna's work. As from analyses of the interviews, drawings, and exercises, I intend to reflect on the questions mentioned above. The IAdança is a university extension project of the Research Group: Dance, Esthetics, and Education (GPDEE), both of them are coordinated by Dr. Prof. Kathya Maria Ayres de Godoy. The IAdança-Núcleo ContemporanIA develops researchs and artistic creations in contemporany dance and theatre-dance. I am member of IAdança and GPDEE since 2010.The Companhia da Dita is an artistic group that researches popular culture in its different manifestations: telling of history and cases, dance, music, and popular manifestations. The Company is formed by graduating students of Licenciatura in Theatre-Art and Licenciatura in Musical Education the company starts its works in 2010 with the orientation of Dr. Pr. Alberto Tsuyoshi Ikeda. I participated in the creation process of the company and I am its a member since then. (AU)
