The main focus of this dissertation is to discuss the effect on an actor's training (or the actor's work upon him- or herself) from the meeting between the Thematic Project Memory/ies and Small Perceptions' conceptual reference and my artistic and pedagogic experience. This Thematic Project is coordinated by Renato Ferracini, who is also the tutor for this master's degree. I searched for clues to think about training specifically about the speech of the actors that work with the Eugênio Barba, Lume and Matula Teatro (the group with whom I work) actors. I also searched in texts by Stanislavski and Grotowski, going through them with reference to the main concept of the aforementioned Thematic Project, namely the Idea of memory as creation, or recreation in present time, and the micro-perceptions as a keen area for the actor's work. Throughout the dissertation, I highlight that many of the reflections on the training emerged from the teaching experience and revisiting my own personal trajectory as an actor. This research then includes an actor's training orientation for the Cia Cupim, a theater crew formed by ex-students of a theater school where I teach. (AU)
