The following project aims for an internship abroad (BEPE), in which the main objective is to go further in the investigations towards the influence of French Culture in Brazilian's Theatre Productions during the so called "Belle Époque Tropical" (XIX-XX)Through the analysis of life and work of two feminine playwriters from that time period, this research enquires the relations between amateurism and professionalism from a gender perspective. Here, the term "Amateurs" has being used as a provocation over the social roles relegated for women in a patriarchal society. Both of the playwriters whom is intended to study in this doctorate have burst the domestic setting, becoming professionals and developing plays in which we can see a forward-looking over women's experience in an extremely violent society for women. The research internship which is going to take place in the Institute of Research in Theatre Studies (IRET), at Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris 3, will deepen the studies over dramaturgical production in France, always keeping in mind the direct influence of French Dramaturgy models in Brazilian Theatre. During the internship the Grand Guignol will also be researched. The French genre created in Paris during the 19th century has been inspiration for Guilhermina Rocha's playwright, but remains unstudied in Brazil. At last, the internship aims to investigate under French Press if the Brazilians playwriters had worked or made any professional contact in Paris during the period in which they lived in the capital of France.
