This Project proposes a reflection over the frontier territory between the performative body and the everyday body, searching identify similar and different fields that might strain and cause powerful reflexions over the actor's job over himself and creational processes on the contemporary scene. Therefore, we will study the works of Eleonora Fabião's - actress and performer from Rio de Janeiro -, and the crew OPovoemPé, from São Paulo. The project also predicts the creation and performing of a scenic exercise that will be developed by the researcher with the group she works with: Grupo Matula Teatro. To think over this hybrid territory, as conceptual references, we will study thinkers from the performing, theater and philosophy fields. Among them, I highlight Richard Schechner, Josette Féral, Jerzy Grotowski, Antonin Artaud and Espinoza. The performing and the conceptual fields will be in constant dialogue, having as reference the guidelines indicated by the cartographic method. (AU)
