This practice-based thesis introduces an interdisciplinary analysis of the poetics of audiovisual performance, multimedia and intermedia works. Emphasizing on how the performativity and the presence of the artist in the execution of his work are intertwined in the form of the work; whose composition is permeated by issues related to its technical device. When discussing specific work situations that attach movement to the final shape; from which we consider evidencing the manifestation of the creator / inventor\'s \"embodied mind\" as the connection point, between poetic and the means employed for its execution, we come to the principle of presence modalities, from which we discuss the relationship between corporeality, performativity and technical device. By means of a laboratorial process to establish the trilogy of multimedia performance poetics, entitled #LiveLivingPerformanceProject, we come to the theoretical points that are relevant to the work, as embodied mind, digital double, digital self and digital syncretic audiovisuality. The multimedia artwork that results from the research is built in a transcendental symbolism. Of free adaptation and interpretation of the mythology of female African- Brazilian archetypes, as well as influences of the knowledge of native American peoples; all related to the elements of nature, that will be the central focus of the introduction of the poetics of the project. Paved with the elements of nature as the psychic and symbolic personifications founding forces, we will demonstrate how we got to the heart of the poetics, which is established throughout the research process. When experimenting with various digital interfaces and audiovisual systems, crossing our practical experience by observing establishment processes of performance projects, we form our analysis through the cohesion between practical processes, and operational concepts from different fields of philosophy, arts of moving images and performance arts, which discuss issues such as visibility, multimediality, intermediality, technical device, poetics, presence and digital double.
