Through techniques of European modern theater and dance, the importance of the body in the interpretation of the actor is approached. The body is practiced in exploring and perfecting its means of expression. Without imposing the titles of movements, such as physical theater or performance, the teaching is multidisciplinary: it remains open to the stimuli of the time, it uses basic elements of dance but without specific dance styles, it insists on the importance of acting and not on the achievement of a simple dance skill. The result is to focus on how the body helps approach, master and better perform a role. Through the application of the techniques taught, students are challenged to transform systematized knowledge into creative initiative. Cultivating aesthetics alongside technique trains students to be creators and not just performers.
