The objective underlying this thesis is the investigation of related Latin American artistic practices in the different uses of the real in contemporary creations. From the perspective of authors such as Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze and Giorgio Agamben, the real is here approached as enhancer device of indisciplinares experiments. This research is devoted to the analysis of interdisciplinary projects from the Argentine Emilio García Wehbi, the Colombians Heidi and Rolf Abderhalden, and the Peruvian Carlos Cueva. Through the poetics of these creators, it is intended to recognize the dialogues between such practices with the theoretical studies of the presence of the real in contemporary art developed by researchers like José Antonio Sánchez, Maryvonne Saison and Hal Foster. Through this practical and theoretical repertoire, it is sought to ascertain the co-relationships and motivations that made it possible, in different languages, the tension to the notion of representation from the ownership of the different dimensions of the real. This path wants to discuss to what extent the experience with real affects the theatrical phenomenon, and how the experiment with reality, as ethics and aesthetics action, reconfigures the artistic experiences in the specific context of Latin America.
