This project has as main objective the verticalization of the studies on the central concept that guides the present research, the dissident theatricalities. In order to analyze the experiences of dissidence in the contemporary Latin American scene, this investigation proposes an exchange with the main researcher who is dedicated to the subject, professor doctor José Antonio Sánchez, from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM). Throughout the proposed timetable, the elaboration of this future thesis can be boosted through the contributions of the overseas supervisor in the three main lines of research that it coordinates. The first one related to the group of studies that guides, the ARTEA: research and scenic creation; the second linked to the platform it runs, or AVAE: virtual archive of performing arts; and the third one related to the actions of the masters he designed, the MPECV: scenic practice and visual culture. Through these three initiatives, which find in the dissident theatricalities important perspectives of analysis of the performative scene of Latin America, the researcher could be part of a significant team of Latin American professors who are collaborators of the UCLM, such as the Cuban-Mexican researcher Ileana Diéguez, the Colombian director Rolf Abderhalden and Chilean director Ana Harcha Cortés, from Núcleo Arte, Política y Comunidad, a group studied in this doctorate. In addition to having the unique opportunity to be in dialogue with theorists who have been making significant theoritical contributions regarding the relations between theatricality, public and democracy, as is the case of the Spanishes Óscar Cornágo and Victória Pérez Royo, who also teach at UCLM. In this other institution, it is hoped to significantly expand the bibliographical references of the research so as to better discuss the materials already collected on the case studies that make up this future thesis. If the hypothesis that underlies this doctorate is that in the context of Latin America specific creative procedures are formulated that mix the artistic and social fields, after the internship abroad, it will be possible to have realized a deeper understanding of the practices and theories related to theatricalities dissidents and their desires for interference in the practices of democracy in Latin America.
