Through the premiss of the ritualistic origin of the dramatic arts and the rite as an update of the myth, this project seeks to analyse the possible connections between the mythical mind and it's collaborations with acting studies. Basing the research in the investigation of the imaginary mind and considering that some mythical aspects of this phenomenon's origin are still present in the current days, the recognition of the mythical line forces in the drama arts is set as the project's main objective, as well as it's relevance and collaboration potential as an analysis procedure. Setting this hybrid conceptual range (imaginary mind studies and dramatic arts studies), an example of this in the analysis of a text and it's staging will be proposed.
