ABSTRACTDeparting from the concept of 'performance' by Paul Zumthor, this work searches, in the occitane narrative of the XIII th century and in the seven galician-portuguese cantigas de amigo by Martin Codax, the voice modulation and the body expressivity in jongleurs, seeking to identify in which way both these genres, narrative poem and lyric poetry, give prior to distintct gestures. In the occitan roman, we analyse - in the perspective of dialogical interventions - the relation of the interpreter with the listeners. In the seven chaints, we mark the using of rhetorical-styllistc resources as support to memory and voice expressivity. In this way, we contextualize the social function of jongleurs, delimiting its space, its habilities and marking its importance as trasnmissors of medieval literary production. As a synthesis of this investigation we reflect about the presence of this tradition in contemporary times through the transcription of Codax's chaints to the dance show "Sem Mim", made by Grupo Corpo.
